An original oil painting on wood by Rima Staines, BREADBOARD ERZULIE.
Here is the Black Madonna: ancient, holy, wide-hipped, dark-skinned, scar-faced, milk-giving goddess holding her sun-child.
Inspired by Polish Orthodox icons and Haitian Voudou, and above all by motherhood, this peasant-saint painted on a breadboard is strong giver of sustenance, and protector of mothers.
Measures 6” x 9”.
On the reverse, as well as the painted title and artist name, is the original breadboard embossed lettering reading “Guten Appetit” in German. On the front, you can just discern marks from the cutting of bread under the paint surface.
This price includes safe packaging and appropriate insurance.
