"The Shameful One"

Ironic

“Ironic”

This is a drawing of an Egyptian scarab, the symbol of self creation. Ironically  the scarab is also a dung beetle. An unlikely hero in todays culture. I really like this juxtaposition and implied humility. Drawn in ballpoint pen (a free artist material in the U.S.) and mounted on a sheet of plywood, makes this a particularly democratic work of art.

    This captures everything I admire about dung beetles with beauty and poetry. Are your works for sale?!
