A Man Deserted By His Shadow
A Man Deserted By His Shadow
Acrylic on Canvas
13" X13"

In an old European folktale, a man sells his shadow to the Devil, and then finds out he's made a horrible mistake. He's sold his identity, and his connection to the earth and his neighbors. The great German Expressionist E.L. Kirchner did a fantastic series of woodcut prints illustrating the story.
