Saintly White Cat

by Cath Laffan

Size (H x W x D): 19 x 15 x 4 cm

Year created: 2011

About this piece:

"Saintly White Cat" is a painting, using acrylics on wood.
The piece follows the traditional imagery used for a Madonna with heart and lillies.
The heart represents sacrifice with the lillies signifying purity.
Stylistically following the iconographic tradition, with flat areas of colour and use of gold, the piece investigates the relationship between valued pet, precious object and superstitious beliefs.
