Art Description

Painting: Oil, Wood on Other.

This painting uses tongue-in-cheek humor to describe ego and ambition as well as mortality. The mask, settled upon the stubborn goat's head is a rendering of the death mask of Agamemnon, warrior and Greek anti-hero. The goat wears the mask balanced precariously between his antlers, symbolizing the fleeting ludicrous nature of ambition. The pattern in the antlers and the background represent eternity, spinning forever out and constantly turning in upon itself. It also becomes a halo of sorts, symbolizing sainthood and desire to do good as a backdrop, dwarfed by the desire for glory and immortality.
