Our 4th place winning painting, “Lord of Leatherson” was created at the Battle of the Brush, season 2 grand finale art competition. The work was voted for 4th place to the theme of “Evolution”. This painting depicts a winged monkey child holding the egg of life. The egg of life represents the natural essence of the monkey, however, over time and through evolution, the monkey is taught how to act and behave properly. However, in reality, the monkey will always have its essence and keep its inner child alive.
