The God of the South

(C) JOHN FANSMITH 2015

In many ancient cultures (and perhaps a few modern ones) the gods were both anthropomorphic and an embodiment of some element or aspect of nature. “The God of the South” is one of a four part series of monotypes which employ color to manifest the essence of the particular God. The colors of the East reflect the rising sun, those of the West the setting sun, of the North, the blue of ice, and of the South, a mixture of impressions. The images of the gods were inspired by and derived from those of Southeast Asia from Cambodia and Thailand to Indonesia. Matted and framed to 16″ x 20″. $395
