Madonna – 2022

digital work

Virgin Mary inside a bomb. It suggests the instant destruction of an archetypal image, culture, values, ideals, by a … man made, man-controlled object. (Lisa Larsen, Art Historian)

The fallen bomb enshrines the silhouette, which in conjunction with the Christian symbol of the Madonna creates the dome of the temple. The temple of suffering and pain, in which the greatness of the human spirit is manifest.
