Artwork Description

This was for an art project at school, and took several weeks to complete, what with tests and the (evil) like. Pretty much every element of the picture is symbolism, even the bell. Having said that, I'd love to hear anyone's interpetations on this! I'm very much into symbolism and allegory, y'see.

Thanks for looking!

This is nothing short of incredible. I love the range of strokes you used, from crosshatching, to parallel lines,to "marbled" lines (that's what my teacher calls them, anyways) to stippling. Especially the stippling. It's amazing.

Pen and ink? my god this is amazing, im sorry.. I just love this. I cannot say much about it as far as skill, because I think it is virtually perfect. Now for the symbolism, I am really into it too, so I shall give it a whirl..on the one side there is death, with a bell to sound the coming of its breath, while on the other hand there is life, ferocious in its will to live and they both are before the gates, on the steps into the afterlife, and inbetween we have an observer, not only there to witness life and death itself, but we the viewer as well, who in a way are in between life and death as well. I identify most with the figure in the middle.

I think that they are deciting who's child it is. Just a theory, though. That picture is super cool, and i love it, especially the eyes on both.

The kid looks like both s, right?
