The Terrestrial Orb

Egg tempera and gold leaf on oak

12cm x 12cm in frame

This miniature painting is inspired by the exquisite terristrial orb at the centre of the Westminster Retable, a masterpiece of English medieval art. In my version, I try to capture the vibrancy of the natural world and place it in a fragile orb, underlining the need to treasure and protect it.
