Surrealistic nude oil painting

Una in aliam – 01-09-19

This oil painting is based on my drawing ‘Nude – 17-06-15’. An artist often sees one thing in another. Salvador Dali saw a rhinoceros in Vermeer’s Lacemaker. I saw a horse in a women’s thigh. Often working on a larger scale than a drawing there is more to be told so I extended the story employing the legend of The Amazons. In today’s era women need a little support.

After all skythian women were equal to their men and quite a match for both skythian male warriors and their greek enemies. In the background there is a fine example of the skythian gold and the Greek pottery at the left represents an Amazon warrior. The arrow in the from make a spearhead together with the slanted position of the horse’s head.
