Olei Simpuvium

'Olei Simpuvium' Oil and ladle in Latin. The Spanish small ovid storage jar transported oil. Its exterior was once accidentally splattered in green oily glaze (perhaps in a Triana Seville workshop)..its a complete one-off a rare-happening, and has survived all this time...here honoured by emerging from the shadows waiting to pour oil into the ladle, unlocked history suggested by the hanging rusty keys.

Raw pigment, charcoal, oil and gesso on board in antique frame.
