Using a photo supplied by a contest Piece from Pxleyes of Cave picture with light beams I added the male model to the image. The model was part of a body study I did with a 50 year old man who was in terrific shape. He was a local politician who admired my work, but wanted to stay incognito. He was very pleased with the work.
I was inspired by the story of Cain and Abel to create this piece.
Genesis 4:13-16 (New International Version)
13 Cain said to the LORD, “My punishment is more than I can bear. 14 Today you are driving me from the land, and I will be hidden from your presence; I will be a restless wanderer on the earth, and whoever finds me will kill me.”
15 But the LORD said to him, “Not so [a] ; if anyone kills Cain, he will suffer vengeance seven times over.” Then the LORD put a mark on Cain so that no one who found him would kill him. 16 So Cain went out from the LORD’s presence and lived in the land of Nod, [b] east of Eden.
