I SAVED MY SOUL
Vladimir Kush

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.
