‘ The Judgement of Solomon’

1 Kings 3:16–28 recounts that two mothers living in the same house, each the mother of an infant son, came to Solomon. One of the babies had been smothered, and each claimed the remaining boy as her own. Calling for a sword, Solomon declared his judgment: the baby would be cut in two, each woman to receive half. One mother did not contest the ruling, declaring that if she could not have the baby then neither of them could, but the other begged Solomon, "Give the baby to her, just don't kill him!"

The king declared the second woman the true mother, as a mother would even give up her baby if that was necessary to save its life, and awarded her custody. This judgment became known throughout all of Israel and was considered an example of profound wisdom

An imaginative piece of Cubist work showing Solomon as a female.

The third eye is an important factor in this painting.
Here was a blank canvas, and my brush worked across the canvas quickly.

Different colours appeared.
It was a long task as the judge didn’t appear right.

Other artists will know what I mean when I said he did not want to be there and suddenly she appeared as the judge.

It was an interesting piece of work.

Worked on 100%, linen canvas
