- Artist Notes
- An adopted son of Royalty,he rose to defend the humble with words,and then deeds...for which he stood accused. He offered his life,That honor was refused.''If we hang him,he`ll be a martyr,but if we lock him away,he`ll be forgotten.'' .....They gave him an island prison and rocks to break.....for 27 years....HE did not break...the people did not forget.The hungry,the crowded,the imprisoned,the lynched ,the widowed,...the ignored.HE lived the cause, A Shepherd and a Shaman,his flock swelled,his spirit grew...and the world turned........to notice....and when the power fell......into his hands,HE did not strike out with revenge...HE reached out...for reconcilliation........oil on canvas
