Roman Gladiators
The gladiators enter the Roman arena and challenge a lion, one has fallen, but another gladiator attempts to challenge the wild and glorious beast, behind him attendants run for their lives as the emperor watches from his august balcony complete with concubines, as you look into the work you will see theat the gladiator is caught in his own trap, one foot is caught up in the ropes of his net there is a moral here  just as the lion has killed his companion it is left to your imagination wether the next gladiator will be successful
This is a “Show Stopper” a perfect conversation piece for any classical collection.

When you meet the poet
That hour is blessed when we meet a poet, the poet is brother to a Dervish he has no country nor is he blessed with the things of the world, and we poor creatures that we are. are worrying about fame power and riches, the poet stands on a basis of equality with the power of the earth and people bow down for him. Pushkin

Perhaps this is an indictment of spirituality a mandate for the noble profession to record what has moved you and enlightened your world. by making paintings, or poetry you enter a timelessness mental state and record with all your God given skills for posterity  Drake
