the lady britannia

October 11, 2012

a close-up from a sketch i was working on recently…

this design features britannia, who is the traditional female personification of the british isles.

the lady britannia will stand proudly with her trident, shield, and lions. however, the eventual title of the piece will be ‘this empire burns’ – so the broader view will reveal her to be in state of corruption and decay.
