    It has compound eyes so I guess that's close enough :) ....Is it a dragonfly or damselfly @lobster :)

  • lobsterlobster Veteran

    I believe it is a damselfly Buddha . . . possibly called Tara

    Moderator note:

    Good point well-presented, @Socair. (Although to be COMPLETELY Impartial, both you and I contributed some of the Papanca...)

    Off-topic comments, deleted.

    I will be more vigilant, in future. Good to be reminded.

    Carry on (topic).

    It's all that remains of a particularly bothersome member....

    No, seriously, the Artist painted it at a time when his wife was seriously ill with a brain tumour.
    There is much symbolism regarding both the frailty of the human frame, and the brevity of life, which can change at the turn of a card... and often, no matter how we carefully plan, the 'joke' is on us.... the box is symbolically shaped as a cross, religion being but a 'cover' an desperate refuge in the face of adversity; the bubble-wrap the protective element; he wanted to shield his wife's head from harm, and to afford her protection, but it was a flimsy effort in the face of her condition. When the tumour was finally removed, it was the size of the glass marble.....

    Known in art history terms as a Vanitas. I find them a bit stultifying, but I suppose that's the point of the exercise! Certainly a great illustration of the topic @federica :)

    Emptiness is form and form is emptiness.
