My silk painting, Guardian, is an expression of the two beautiful neoclassical sculptures by Antonio Canova, created for the tomb for Pope Clement XIV at St Peter’s Basilica in Rome titled, The Sleeping Lion, and The Genius of Death. Canova, sometimes called 'the supreme minister of beauty, is known for his most famous works which include Cupid and Psyche (1786-93, Louvre, Paris), and The Three Graces (1813-16, Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg).
Some believe the Angel or Genius of Death is always near, and we are like sleeping lions, going about our lives as if we are immortal, never to die and never to pay a consequence for our offenses. Unconscious of the possibility of an afterlife, never knowing the time nor day of our death.
