#381 “Beware…”

From Arantxa in Colombia,

I’m not sure if this is a wolf dressed in sheep’s clothing or a sheep dressed in wolf’s clothing, but either way there is something mesmerizing about this work’s mysterious simplicity- something enchanting about the beauty of the smooth and effortless lines of construction that are so straightforward yet so enigmatic. In the end, it is this evasive focus that seems to make this piece beautiful as well as somewhat menacing. Seeing as how I’m examining this piece during the early hours of a Sunday morning, I can’t help but to be reminded of Matthew 7:15: “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”
