About The Artwork:
"Cosmopolitan" is a one-of-a-kind black-and-white illustration by Karien Bredenkamp. This surreal artwork features an eagle with wings made of hands, creating an unforgettable image that will turn heads wherever it is displayed.
The eagle is a powerful symbol of freedom, strength, and nobility. It has been revered by many cultures throughout history and is often seen as a symbol of power and authority. The eagle's wings represent the ability to soar high above the rest, while its sharp eyesight represents wisdom and knowledge.
Hands are a powerful symbol of strength and control. In many cultures, hands represent the ability to create and manipulate the physical world around us. They are often associated with craftsmanship, manual labor, and industry. Hands can also be seen as a sign of protection and security, with their ability to offer comfort, warmth, and support to those in need.
These two symbols combine to create an image filled with strength, control, and potent symbolism.
"The eagle does not escape the storm. The eagle simply uses the storm to lift it higher. It spreads its mighty wings and rises on the winds that bring the storm." — Jack White
