Pendants for the Queen
OIL ON CANVAS. ORIGINAL SIZE 11x14 in

  • Pendants adorning a mask are common in many cultures.
  • From time immemorial, Caribbean natives have made golden objects adorned with exotic feathers.

A golden mask rising on the shore is the face of a largely unknown world – the world of the ocean – turned toward us. It is as if this animated force of the deep had assumed a female image to enter into dialogue with the people of the land. Born from the sea foam like Aphrodite, she comes forth in all her splendor. A burning mark of royal dignity, the flaming circle of the sun shines on her forehead. Dolphins, those intelligent creatures of the sea, splash in the abyss of her eyes. They will help the Queen grasp human thought.
