Original Painting Sold. Prints available.



Alpha and Omega

Alpha and Omega is about the balance and equality of male and female. Emperor Haile Selassie and Empress Menen Asfaw sits side by side in a three quarter view. Both faces are painted in a reddish brown hue showcasing light on the front plane of their majesties faces. The light yellow hue gives the painting a golden glow of royalty.

Their gold crowns and royal red robes adorned with golden olive branches are blended with the background that was painted in dark blue. This dark blue background expresses night time which helps the painting appear as though the Emperor and Empress are emerging from midnight. The painting invokes a feeling of perfect unity and harmony between both man and woman. It also expresses the joint rulership and authority.
