This painted collage depicts eternal clash of Justice (Iustitia in Latin ) and Law (Ius in Latin). I have had a lot of conversations and debates with my wife, that is judicial lawyer. She'd opened me imaginary doors to brand new world that I'd never seen so far interesting and complicated. To find justice and define it by law in legal cases is sometimes pretty tricky and ungrateful work.
It is serious theme and I've tried to express it in timeless way. Two sides of the clash are accompanied with many symbolic details connected with the topic, as is described in one of pictures here. The painting could work in both, professional and privacy enviroment, but I've have thought it like a prominent piece in a lawyer, judge or notary office. We'll see whom the painting will speak to.
The artwork's been done with professional oil colours, finally varnished by Master Umton. It is framed in white wooden lath, ready to hang. There is a cardboard recyclable box and the painting could be dispatched within 3 working days.
Thank you for your purchase. Enjoy living with your original AUGUSTIN!
