Cleopatra Temple Obelisk
Cleopatra Temple Obelisk
Oil on canvas
60" x 40" inches (per panel)

The figure in red embodies the symbolic connotation that she is a force for life and fire (destruction). Red is often associated with the blood of the Goddess Isis. The figure has a Cleopatra hairstyle with colored beads braided around the tips. The seven colors of the beads reflect the ‘chakras’, suggesting an energetic field radiating from the golden capstone of the obelisk.
