La Regina di lu Mediterraneo
Description by the artist
La Regina di lu Mediterraneo (sicilian for The Queen of the Mediterranean) who forgives her man and looks at him with love, giving him what she carries in her depths: her greatest treasures. With the golden thread of her soul she joins him and shines like a star. The artwork, painted in oil on canvas , is three-dimensional as it contains real volumes created by the mixed material, natural shells and synthetic pearls. The edge, 4 cm, is created with a double frame painted on the sides as well.
