Gustav Klimt's painting 'Death and Life' is quite typically Symbolist in both its content and form and here I attempt to bring the symbolism of the 'Life' group, of intertwined figures of infancy, youth, maturity and old age, celebrating life bound up in love ,.. a step further in its inclusiveness.
This more global representation slumbers in peace, content with love, unconcerned by any differences between races, creeds, genders or nations.
'Death' in Klimt's original painting has been deliberately omitted and the focus is placed on living in the present 'Now', in symbiosis & love as one family, unfettered by human constructs of the afterlife.

'Life' is signed in the front and back, and comes with a signed
'Certificate of Authenticity', with details of the piece...
This piece has been undeniably authenticated with my thumbprint in oil (blurred here for confidentiality) and signed, titled and dated on the back with waterproof, archival pigment black ink.
Created in 2014
Protected with Artist's Gloss Varnish with UV protection
'Life' comes ready to hang in a new custom made rustic wooden frame (see below), personally hand crafted by me to fit 'Life's dimensions perfectly, and seasoned with a deep brown tint & stand oil finish for protection.
