Soul Of Jeita Grotto

The Soul Of Jeita Grotto
100 x 120 cm
Acrylic, Oil On Canvas

Jeita Grotto is a series of limestone caves in Lebanon. These caves have been morphed into what they are today through millions of years. A true marvel of nature. Today (in 2011) It is one of the finalists for the 7 Wonders Of Nature contest- a source of national pride for the Lebanese. However, during the civil war, these caves were used as ammunition stores.

On the painting, the intricacies of millions of years of formation to the tune of the earth song and it’s vulnerability.
