Divine Allegory

Painting, 2019, 80×60×2 cm

Description of the artwork «Divine Allegory»

Divine allegory is a motive that partly resembles fables, legends, tales, myths, but at the same time carries the purity of the divine heritage that exists in every soul, even lost and vicious.

This picture takes the viewer to the original source, where this animal with horns plays a huge role. Let's see what this animal means and what it brings to the house.

The goat in symbolism means life-giving cosmic forces, it is associated with fertility.

The goat of Amalfeus is the revered nurse of the Greek god Zeus (Jupiter), her horn is a cornucopia

Due to the vitality of the goat, it is associated with some Sumero-Semitic and Greek gods. The Vedic god Agni rides on a jerky goat, the goat carries the chariot of the god Thor.
The goat is often used for sacrifice. The lamb is called both the sacrificial lamb and the kid. The scapegoat is a symbol of atonement for other people's sins or shortcomings. The Bible tells us that the "goat of descent" (the "goat of Azall" - a demon of the desert) was taken by Jews to the wilderness on the Day of Purification, Yom Kippur. He symbolically took away with him the accumulated sins for the year. J. Fraser, in his fundamental work The Golden Branch (1890), notes that in ancient times in the countries of Asia Minor affected by drought, plague or crop failure, people who took the sins of the rulers, stoned or sacrificed as a goat absolution.
In China, where the words “goat” and “yang” are homonyms, the goat is a positive male symbol, as well as in India, where, as a skilful conqueror of mountain peaks, the goat is associated with excellence.

Let this work bring you only the best and most powerful with your image!
