Hand embellished using individual silver stud embellishments giving a lovely shine that catches the light from different angles.
This painting was inspired by my interest in other cultures and ancient civilizations, in particular the Aztecs, and their fascination with both the sun and the moon. Adopting geometric symbolism, the downward pointing triangle represents lunar energy, creativity and flow and, along with the pyramid shape of the studs, this mirrors the Pyramid of the Moon at Teotihuacan, a pre-Hispanic site in Mexico. Some have called this structure Tenan, which in Nahuatl, means “mother or protective stone.” Constructed between 200 and 450 AD, there is a platform atop the pyramid which was used to conduct ceremonies in honor of the Great Goddess of Teotihuacan, the goddess of water, fertility, the earth, and even creation itself.
Framed in a 49mm Matt Black/Silver frame - solid wood reverse sloped matt black frame with a silver foil inner edge. Crystal clear 2mm acrylic glazing. Shatter proof and 20% clearer than glass. The painting is signed on the front and comes with a signed Certificate of Authenticity attached to the back of the frame.
