GOLD AK47 ART PRINT
Double AK47 stands for opposing forces, the juxtaposition of mankind and mother nature.
The dollar bill origami butterflies are symbolic of capitalism opposing real butterflies. One magazine on the left AK47 is open showcasing clear AK47 bullets filled with symbolic elements which show the positive and negative effects on the planet and people.
The Gold AK47 is a play on man’s obsession with his own vanity, it is ironic as man feels embellished by gold, an element which has been forming on our planet for hundreds of thousands of years, and yet in return through our own blinding greed, we destroy the home where the gold forms in only just a few hundred years.
A sad reality captured through a powerful art piece. The title of the piece is ‘Aurum Geminus’ which is Latin for ‘Gold Gemini’ – Gemini is the sign of duality and opposing forces – as shown by the two AK47s.
