THE ARTWORK

-

A figure wearing a suit is portraited according to the numismatic standards. The crown of the king is always present in these kind of images, as the most representative symbol of the monarchic power. In this case the crown is part of the body like a natural appendix. It seems a branch that starts from the neck e takes all the head: eyes or other body features are not important. The hatching used for the skin and the head-crown seems to reproduce the bark's texture, so that the impression is that we are in front of a tree, or better in front a man who is transforming in a tree as if he were a character from Ovidio’s Metamorphosis. Beside the classical echos, the critic element is still strong: as in most of Molina’s works is possible to see a critic to power, in this case the royal power that is represented strict and static, without eyes, so without the chance to see the reality around it.
