Cirque du Soleil by borda Cirque du Soleil by borda
oil/canvas 100x90 cm
This is an interpretation after Rubens drawing [link] after Leonardo's "Battle of Anghiari" so you see here a bad foto of copy of a copy of a great idea :))

the allegory of life, Yin and Yang, in a few words can see below, the sun in battle with the night, the moon sustaining the wheel of the instinctual, demonic energy symbolised bt the centaur like arlequin, with his opposide the angel like one from the inorog, bla bla, just an eye opener, see your self :P

your link to Rubens doesn't work anymore - maybe stick with wikipedia .... en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Batt…

really good, movement is really good, is not so simple to draw anatomy in this way, very compliment! This work remember me Laooconte  for movement or "Centauromachia" by Raffaello Sanzio .. my examples relate to the sculptures, you've drawn, I know :) compliment for this painting .

Love the impossible, but convincing ingredient. Makes you search as a viewer...I detect a lot of frustration and anger-blowout in this!

I'm about to launch a Mayan/Yucatan themed showing on November 1st.

You were part of my inspiration.

I love the colors and the tightness of your paintings.

Someday I would very much like to meet you.

God really blessed you well.



I will note you when I post the photos of my showing.

Provocative, unique & intriguing. I feel more contrast would help the very animated scene become clearer quicker. Slightly off balance to the left but really quite good. Entertaining. I enjoy this piece. Well done.
