Scarabs

I'm still painting away - the gallery calls!
This is a painting I started a year ago.
A fractured abstract version of a
decorative scarab.
 

 It has a long way to go -
and I'm still not sure where it's headed .
. .
 
I used an incredible stencil - clock mechanisms.
In Egypt, the scarab was seen as a symbol of the heavenly cycle and of the idea or rebirth or regeneration. So I thought the stencil symbolizes time and the passage of time - so it seemed appropriate to use it in this painting.
