Crossroads Landscape Painting
This oil painting is based on a cemetery tree that has three leaders arising from the trunk instead of one. The three branches form a tripartite crossroads in the air above the ground. This type of crossroads is generally associated with the goddess Hekate, one of the old gods who could travel between this world and the underworld. She is herself often depict as having three faces. The three branches of this crossroads also are firmly connected to the ground through the trunk and its roots. A crossroads is a good place for placing offerings or making requests, especially of spirits a bit on the dark side.
The original oil painting is 16 x 20"/41 x 51cm on cotton canvas with a traditional 75"/2cm profile and is ready to frame.
