Detail View Pandemic & The Pangolin Within Rattan Box

Oil on Canvas and Glass Rattan Box, 2020

Annamarie Trombetta

New York, NY

This  canvas depicts  darkness and sunlight conjoined by the ethereal energy radiating from the hand held text within the image..  The sides of the canvas are painted with symbols of various religions and beliefs that could represent the spiritual text on  the canvas.  The message is that all faiths are one in the same.  The painting stands on a wooden rotating spinner.

The  circular  canvas  is encased within a glass rattan box to symbolize the world  and the current "boxed in" state of circumstances. The coronavirus  in the atmosphere is the same as the viral source, the pangolin ( asian anteater).
