Nature’s Graces evolved from a banner to an original piece of art to honor the great artist, Raphael. An Italian painter and architect of the High Renaissance. His work is admired for its clarity of form, ease of composition, and visual achievement of the Neoplatonic ideal of human grandeur. Together with Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, he forms the traditional trinity of great masters of that period.

The Three Graces, goddesses of such things as charm, beauty, and creativity were well known in Greek mythology. In Roman mythology they were known as the Gratiae. Here I have shifted the concept to include the caduceus, the  kundalini and the Tree of Life.

You can see the evolution of the art below. It is about 5’x5.5′, acrylic, oil, gold leaf, honey, coffee, varnish on vinyl. The hand made frame was designed by me. It is a beautiful piece and available for purchase. Make me an offer!
