Divinatio Gladius II


Oil on wood painting, the work measures 24 x 18". It is a still life juxtaposing tarot cards, notably the 7 of Swords, with William Morris' peacocks and dragons on the wall behind. Symbolizing power and divination among other things, the peacock alternates itself with the powerful dragon, while the thief in the 7 of Swords deceitfully makes off with his prize. Laying on the mantle, the Knight of Pentacles reminds us to be patient, reliable and steady. The 4 of Pentacles lays flat, warning us against hoarding things of value. Unframed. Price includes shipping within the US.
