This work has no need for words. It is eloquent.  

It is my own fantasy representation the ‘Unity of Italy’ in 24 carat gold leaf as I like to see it.

Sardinia and Sicily are snuggled up close to the Italian mainland and all are bound together with indissoluble ties. The binding strings are painted with the three colours of the Italian flag, green, white and red.

I did this painting to in the year 2011 which was the anniversary of 150 years of the Unity of Italy.
