Lady Liberty Borrows Athena’s Plumed Helmet (2021)
Watercolor and acrylic on mixed media paper
9″ x 12″

From the artist:
Liberty may be described as an essential human right. This rendering of Lady Liberty demonstrates the familiar details of her imagery, but also includes the recognizable plumed helmet of Greek goddess Pallas Athena. Said goddess served as a personification of wisdom, her essence imperative alongside liberty so pursuits of freedom may be constructive rather than destructive.
