Detail View Pandemic & The Pangolin Within Rattan Box
Oil on Canvas and Glass Rattan Box, 2020
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).
