"The Old Warrior"

Oil on canvas

The Old Warrior stands proud and looks into infinity. He is from the Yemen and the colours of his outfit represent the heat and grace of his country.

The work carries a great deal of energy. The direction of the knife handle as well as the crossed multicoloured sashes enveloping the top half of his body, make one’s eyes wonder diagonally across the painted surface, thus linking all four sides together.
