“Strong Medicine” by William Villalongo
Medium: cut velour on matte board
This piece of artwork caught my attention because I thought was a pine tree when I first saw it. But when I look up closer I saw the snake show up in the pile of tree branches(?) when the bird pick up one of them. It symbolizes whenever you do something, someone might be watching you in the dark. The raised hand might show surrender because you never know how many of them is in the dark since you can’t see them.The feeling that I have after I took a closer look on it was when you are in a dangerous situation,the only way to be safer is to surrender.
