Turquoise Robin Theotokos

$ 0.00

This Byzantine inspired painting shows a mother Robin and her chick, as a Theotokos image.  Each bird is encircled with a gold leaf halo, the chick with wispy feathers gazing up at the mother.  An intricate background of muted blue-green pattern is highlighted in gold linework behind them.  The frame is metallic gold with patina-style turquoise and sepia.

This highly detailed piece is part of my series of stylized and embellished bird portraits, which encourage the viewer to contemplate the value we place on individual animal lives.

SIZE: painting is 8x10 inches, frame measures just under 11 x 13 inches

MEDIA: acrylic and gold leaf painting on cradled panel, varnished, framed.  Ready to display, with hanger attached.
