By Philipp Weber, Germany.
A resting lady-in-waiting has lured pursuers away from the queen.
The lady-in-waiting has distracted unknown enemies with all her wiles and will, luring them away from her queen. To stop them, she became injured, but the plan worked, and now she can rest again.
Philipp Weber’s mastery shows once more in the details of this brilliant painting. The work infers a strong sense of accomplishment and a job well done, and like some of Philipp Weber’s other works, there’s a strong message of survival and rejection of permanent victimization present.
The recurring subject itself of women being subjected to injury while presenting strength and fortitude remains at the center of these empowering works.
