Cows and angels (etching  1995)

Cows and angels (etching 1995)

A green-hued monochrome depicting an undulating hilly landscape with graceful fern-like trees. Along the lower edge, lies a lidless coffin with the head situated towards the right of frame. A woman with arms crossed over a covering shroud lies peacefully within. A white cow with beautiful angel’s wings floats above her with her head positioned high above the head of the woman. The cow’s whiteness seems to glow brightly against the dark landscape. Just above her lower belly, the cow’s hide becomes transparent revealing her womb in which appears a tiny baby wrapped in swaddling; a halo appears to encircle her head.
