Acrylic on canvas

The photo doesn’t quite capture the luminous greens and blues dancing in the original, also the presence of an elusive but awesome angel in the midst, but hey that’s the way it is when the sunshine don’t shine and the light-bulbs are planet-saving dimlings.
I don’t know what its all about really, there is a pyramid surrounded by an ocean, the rising sun heats the water and it carves its way through a wall of ice. Like the end of the ice-age when the huge wall of ice was slain by the sun and gushed a flood upon the earth – history repeats, past is prophecy and the future is ancient – the ice-age serves as a symbol of what half discerned mysteries will unfold in our time.
