Candle

 

Constantine the Great transformed night into day with the "pillars of wax". Thus an ancient biography says about a man who brought the light of Christianity to the Roman Empire. In the painting a woman holds the torch of the spiritual light dispersing the dark night of ignorance. Inspired by spiritual passion she turns herself to the invisible forces of cosmos controlling the elements on Earth. She prays to save and protect her home and her family, and the fertility of the earth… Generations come and go, but the lamp of life is passed from hand to hand like a baton is being passed from runner to runner.
