I SAVED MY SOUL
20" x 23"
Limited Edition Giclee Canvas: 100
The lion and the
lamb are a symbolic pair, since olden times representing the opposite
qualities and phenomena - war and peace, ferocity and gentleness,
hardness and softness... But the artist introduces into the well-known
images a new theme – that of mercy and atonement. The lion releases
his victim and thus saves his soul. This idea is embodied in a
monumental image of a stone lion, raising his head and turning his
eyes upward. There, in the heavenly heights floats a cloud – the
gentle lamb, the Lamb of God. We also know that the lion and the lamb
lying down together symbolize future Golden Age and Paradise Regained.
