Artwork title : Porus

Porus is one of five artworks that is part of my "The Dark of the Light Series".

The artwork shows the female form in a pregnant state. The eggs that are encased in the figures stomach represent the formation of new life within. The body acts as a vessel an incubator for the life forming within. The limbs are ommitted as they are not required for the incubation process. The skull represents death and how the body slowly decays even as new life forms within it.

Acrylic on canvas with frame and backing board.
