Awaiting Sunset ( Mandarin Duck)
10.25" x 7.75"
Encaustic on Wood
In traditional Chinese culture, Mandarin Ducks represent a
life-time couple, unlike many other species of ducks. Hence they
are frequently featured in Chinese art and are regarded as a
symbol of conjugal affection and fidelity. Here the duck is
alone but waiting for his mate as the setting sun appears to set
the water on fire. As it happens, this entire painting was fused
with the flame of a torch.
