The Adversaries

Lynnette Shelley

Ambler, United States

Artist's Description

A Celtic-inspired artwork depicting a dragon and a lion wrestling in a tangled knot

In some mythologies, the lion represents physical strength or the physical body, while the serpent or dragon represents wisdom or the intellect. So this artwork personifies the struggles of the physical vs. the intellectual (or heart vs. mind) that we sometimes go through….

Created with oil pastels,colored pencils, art pens and paint pens on textured orange watercolor paper.
