Purification

Acrylic and thread on leatherette (60x55cm)

After a visit to Stirling Castle, I was inspired to make a series of contemporary paintings based on the Christian narratives of the renowned Hunt of the Unicorn tapestries.

“Purification” is based on the second panel of the series where the unicorn dips its horn into the stream and draws a cross. This cleanses the water from poison and sin, allowing animals to drink safely.
