biblical head

A mythical head with an olive branch. Olives, both branches & oil, have been used in sacred rituals since ancient Egypt. Today we still recognise it  as representing victory, peace and all that's celestial. Celia paints from her knowledge of the classics and this young man is a timeless rendition of a classical portrait.
