14 X 10 Inches

Wood and Stone

We recognize in the painting, the image of a typical central square in a European town: the square where crowds of people once gathered, and the Cathedral with its towers and steeples.

Other related works to this theme are ‘Measure of Greatness’ and ‘Purple Horse at Chartres.’

Key Moment
The tree is always alone. Old age, lightening or the Woodcutter is its destiny. Only ‘calcified rock’ is eternal. Inserted into the collapsed tree, the stone saves it from decay and preserves the masterpiece of architecture for us.

A majestic pyramid preserves the mummy inside; a sculpture immortalizes the features of great people. The hourly rings in the painting preserve time in their patterns.
