PUER aeternus in Latin translates to ‘eternal boy' which is a child-god who is forever young in Greek Mythology. The youthfulness, boundless energy and curiosity of our inner child within us are represented through the tiger in the painting.
This magnificent animal stands in front of the backdrop of an imaginary, hypnotic and dazzling quality. This reflects the human beings’ yearning for freedom, limitlessness and fearlessness.
Work created in 2012.
