Art Description

Painting: Paint on Aluminium.

Size: 32 H x 24 W x 0.2 in

Astraea was the last immortal to leave the earth, fleeing from man's wickedness; she watched, figuratively, while Rome burned, staying until the bitter end. She rose to heaven and became the constellation, Virgo. Also known as the maiden Justice, she gave her symbol, the scales, to the adjoining sign of Libra. It is said that she will return to earth when The Golden Age dawns.
Powdered pigment and solvents on 16swg aluminium.
