Terrestrial Orb 4

Egg tempera and gold leaf on oak panel

30cm x 25cm x 1cm

This painting is inspired by the paradise within a globe seen in the masterpiece of medieval painting, The Westminster Retable. There, the orb is held in the hand of Christ - here, the orb floats in space, unsupported, a fragile bubble which could burst at any moment.
