“Sanctuary and Pyramid Scroll” 1987

Graphite on paper, 72” x 48”. Artist’s collection.
The idea for this drawing was in part inspired by a selfie taken by my sister-in-law Susan Hughes.  She took it while climbing Manchu Picchu. She passed a pyramid constructed  of 2” x 2”s and roofing tin (used by American hippies as meditation huts.  In the photo Susan was in a Buddhist lotus position.  I placed the pyramid inside the famous Giotto fresco image “Visitation of St. Anna” in Padua’s Arena Chapel.
