Artwork Description

This is the tree of the life. Those so close to the tree, given the oppurtunity to become Gods and Goddessess, if they partake of the fruit. But perhaps as those in the Bible could not look upon the snake staff of Moses to save themselves... these can not partake of the fruit for one reason or another... all but the the figure in the middle.

Yes this is very Bottecelli.

This is the most unusual rendering of the subject I've ever seen. I agree that the Botticelli influence is very strong. And the "excuses" people have for not partaking of the truth are so obvious. Kinda speaks to one's conscience, doesn't it. I mean, the truth stays the truth, no matter what we decide to do with it. We must not throw it away in our fear, or disdain, or busy-ness. I love the tree bark, and the river, btw. TerrieTX
