The Happy Prince

In this piece inspired by the Oscar Wilde story, The Happy Prince, once a rich young man with everything one could want except the freedom to live and see reality and now a statue covered in gold and jewels, sees the suffering in the city and commissions a swallow on his annual migration to Egypt for the European winter, to gradually strip him of his riches and give them to the poor he sees now from his vantage point. In this painting done in ink, the sights and memories are incorporated into his body as he looks to the simple swallow with great love for his sacrifice.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
