The encaustic wax painting "Skin Deep" features the powerful head of a bull and skull, presented in a striking black and white color scheme with shimmering gold accents. The painting is a profound meditation on the human experience, highlighting the delicate balance between strength and vulnerability that we all navigate in life. The bull, a traditional symbol of power and might, is depicted here with a sense of solemnity, reminding us that even the strongest of us can be brought low by the unpredictable forces of fate. The skull, meanwhile, is a universal symbol of mortality, calling to mind the fleeting nature of life and the importance of living in the present moment. Through its arresting imagery and thought-provoking symbolism, "Skin Deep" encourages us to embrace life with courage and grace, recognizing both our strengths and our fragility.
This painting comes with an external frame, a hanging wire and is ready to hang.
