Satan’s Gravitas

Acrylic on canvas, 7 ft x 6 ft, 2010
Lead has a satanic quality, it is compared with the planet Saturn that symbolizes time and death. I have used this character as metaphor. Investigative agencies have found excessive lead levels in bones and hair samples of criminals, which is a very clear indication of the connection between increases in crime rates in our present society. I have displayed this in my work “Satan’s Gravitas”. Scientifically speaking Saturn has reverse gravity which is a metaphor for negativity.
