MY COMMENTS:
“Manjar Divino” is the embodiment of a nun, a beggar, a jesus-like spoon in a cross, and the hand of a spirited angel. The theme of the painting revolves around religious and harmonic distributions.

This reminds me of some of the work of Salvador Dali. As I am a big fan of Dali that is a major compliment. Well done

An amazing story you've told here. This is magnificent!

You are very talented. The winged hand with the ear of corn is beautiful and integral to the whole design. But why is the beggar (wonderful!) not aware of this 'gift'?

The squiggly lines at the upper left don't seem to fit into this design as it's too loose for the rest of the work.

Dana Design,
The paintings plot is explained below:
The Corn (1) is Given to the nun who prays (2). Which leads to the nun sacrifice of food (3)(the jesus-like spoon) to the beggar (4).

To answer your question,
No, the beggar is not aware of the corn. But the nun is aware of the beggar.
Hope that helps.

Thanks to everyone for all the feedback.

:confused: Still not sure i "get it" however I dont want any more explanation, I would rather stare and pondor on my own. LOVE THE BEGGAR. This piece as a whole is fantastic! I wanted to check out your website to see more, but I must tell you I found that even more confusing than this piece!?:confused: Where is the artwork? Am I missing something?

Joel2Army,
The website is currently a work in progress. The reason is confusing is because my manager is trying to make a blog/store/artist into one site. I am currenlty emerging as an artist, and hopefully will have my own site pretty soon.
