Artist: Benjamin Goldwing
The artwork has pitched black as its background which represents the night time which is symbolic of the dark phase of every individual’s life. However, the foreground has a sea-goat in chalk white. The sea goat is a creature having the frontal portion that of a billy goat whiles its tail of a fish. This creature has also been represented by the Sumerian primordial god of waters, Enki. At the time of crisis, when mankind was thrust out of this paradise Enki saved the day by teaching mankind the skills of civilization, irrigation, cultivation, medicines. The painter has tried to capture that age of darkness when the Enki showed its light.
The creature can also be compared with the tenth sign of zodiac sign, Capricorn who has the ability to thrive even in the darkest area of existence. Have you known a person who has reached its entire goal facing the entire problem with a steady head? A gift for him/her couldn’t be more perfect.
