RECLAMATION
The exact origins of the Swastika are unknown. What is known is that the history of this lovely and artistic symbol can be dated back in Europe to Roman times as well as appearing on the African, Asian and American continents. To the Hindu it is a very powerful and good symbol still widely used today. Unfortunately to most Europeans it has become a much maligned symbol hated for its use by the Nazis and by a little German man who in the 1940's had designs on world domination.
The simple fact is that a 10 year period in history has destroyed for us a symbol of great beauty that is at least 2000 years old and whose meaning has become lost to us. Is that fair!!!
When I first learned of the history of the Swastika I knew that I had to design a painting in a European context that would capture it's real meaning of good fortune, prosperity and joy.

Set in Europe at the turn of the 17th century, a time when the world was stalked by Witch-finders, and where new and deadly weapons of war crushed bastions of stone that had stood for centuries. The story follows a young woman, Lauryl LeMont, who after the death of her parents must survive on her own. But her beauty and vulnerability are a target even for the most pious of men and she is soon catapulted into a struggle for her survival. Accused of witchcraft and murder she is sentenced to burn at the stake. But when Death arrives to claim her soul he finds that this woman awakens an emotion in him that his own once mortal soul had long forgotten, one that should never have been rekindled. Confused and curious the Grim Reaper decides to let the flame inside him burn. A decision that will change history and make Lauryl immortal.
