Queen of Sheba

in stock


I created the Queen of Sheba as part of my Africa series. The goal was to capture the beauty of female African features with full lips and a full nose. I wanted to emphasize exotic deep eyes with a look integrity and strength. I wanted her to be seductive without creating a body but rather use colors to show her versatility and the drips (not tears) captured her resilience and determination. Subtle expression of her lips displays her confidence not because of her riches but a deep rooted spirituality in a power greater than herself. The covering of her head and not showing her natural her is a symbol of her humility and vulnerability, and not her surrender.

She surrenders to no man!
