Worship/Ritual 3 Panel Cartoon

1064 A,B,C “Worship/Ritual,” new from the studio, three individual mixed media paintings on gessoed watercolor paper. Size (each) 12 in x 15 in. Intended to be read Left to Right as cartoon panels, possibly as a triptych if you add the passage of small increments of time between the views. The ritual progresses.

About the figure(s): So interesting being a spectator to worship/ritual and accepting as normal the re-shaping of the human body with special clothing that masks the usual visual cues — robes, gilding, lace, helmets, crowns, orbs. All to make the ritual-keeper supersized, without normal features or parts.
