One of the first collage artworks using my "stained glass" technique to cut and paste pieces of prints with gradient colors. Now after 15 years i digitized and animated the original.  Red is the main color and a well suited one for an artwork with a bloody story behind.
My inspiration was the classic painting "Judith Beheading Holofernes" by Caravaggio which visualizes Judith, a Jewish princess, killing after seducing Holofernes, an Assyrian general, in order to save her people . Was Judith a murderer or a hero? I guess she was a hero for her people and one can say that the death of one person justifies the saving of thousands, but still it was a murder. My ambiguous opinion on this subject gave birth to the title of the artwork.

The way you have transformed this into a collage without losing the spirit is amazing George. Caravaggio is one of my favorites..and this particular one truely leaves me neither here nor there..while I marvel at the technical expertise, the subject really is a dilemma..and leads to this whole argument in my head!! That being said I have to mention that roving eye you added.. it is stroke of genius.

Thank you very much for your kind words Indrani:) The eye was kind of an unplanned addition but i wanted from the start to find a way to include a symbolism of the event being witnessed. Either by us as a viewers or a higher power.
