Ancestor Worship

Heres a picture from my back catalogue. Completed it around april last year.

Its part of a project that reinterprets philosophies and non-religious concepts using religion-influenced iconography. I beleive that throughout history, cultures have fashioned gods that represent their understanding of their place in the world. Exploring this apparent psychological need to create objects of worship I rendered a series of deities to personify some key philosophical and scientific concepts that fit within the modern paradigm of scepticism and reason.
