Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas, Other.

The first of my Man O' War series. The symbolism of Man of War is quite amazing. Portuguese man o' war is not a jellyfish but a siphonophore, which, unlike jellyfish, is not actually a single multicellular organism, but a colonial organism made up of specialized individual animals called zooids or polyps. These amazing 'organizations' or 'companies' have individuals that work together and depend on one another for overall survival and success. Additionally, the sting of a man o' war kills its prey and is extremely painful to humans. A formidable yet intrinsic network that provide motivation for a family unit, company, firm or any organization.

Signed on front and signed, titled and dated on back. Certificate of Authenticity included.
