“An Old Woman With A Beautiful Mind” symbolizes the true meaning of time and life: wide skies and deep oceans – limitless and unfathomable. She is firmly standing after a long journey but is still ready to face the challenges and realities of life.
Honed by experience, she provides good and calming advice full of wisdom to troubled spirits, even without speaking a single word or the need to hold your hand.
The brilliantly-colored butterflies fluttering above her represent good thought, freedom, and happiness – things brought about by an equally colourful existence.
The dry and crackling leaves describe the passing of time – withered, like memories – objects, opportunities, success and failure.
The horned beetles represent the struggles and conflicts of human on Earth – our battles and our fight for life. A cycle that everyone of us must endure…
Hope, Love and Faith – words carved not only on canvas but also in our very souls – inspired by the old woman’s pure heart and good mind – to guide us in our mundane existence.
Real Beauty is not of the flesh but reflected in good will….
