My Vision of Peace
This my visual interpretation of the Goddess Sophia. Sophia was revered by the Gnostics as the Goddess of Wisdom. The word "philosophy" comes from the Ancient Greek φιλοσοφία (philosophia), which literally means "love of wisdom". I believe that she represents a good starting point for peace, as wisdom often brings about such a state.


Medium
The medium used is watercolor, with the white in the image being the white of the paper. This allows for a luminous quality with a conservation of material. Researching old illustrations and photo references, drawing everything out, and mapping in pencil before the watercolor is applied.
