During last half of a year I was working seriously on my new painting named “Peace reigns kindness?..."The death knell for the horse.”
Now it’s finished and I would like to show it on Wetcanvas.
Description in a short.
The painting shows the centuries of humiliation of man over the horse. Here: the invasion of the Tatars; and knight of the Middle Ages; and civil wars; and the eerie spectacle of bullfighting for the amusement of the people; and betting on horse racing; and training of horses through its beating; slaughter of horses for meat ... And all this through violence and killing of horses that are taking place in the civilized world.
In the upper right corner - the falling broken bell symbolizes the death knell for the horse. In the center of paintings generalized image of tortured crippled horse. Upstairs on the central part is me, the author of the painting horrified by the acts of man.
I am very waiting for your comments and critique.
“Peace reigns kindness ? ... " The death knell for the horse.”
