This painting comes from my collection "Non Sufficit Una" meaning "One is not enough". One (person) is not enough for life, for love, for being. Sieg is a German word for victory - this painting is about winning. It depicts white wings on a bloody background inspired by a banknote paper. The wings remain clean - this victory is clean - the winner stood away from dirt and now he gets a crown.

Wings as a symbol, is one of my favorite topics. The power of the symbol consists in itself. It represents ethereal beings, geniouses as well as freedom. They express the affiliation to the sphere of heaven. They have the ability to rise above the gravity of Earth.

According to the book "Heraldic Symbolism" by Viktor Palivec, "The wings in the coat of arms mean cheerful message, dynasty´s flourishing and development, which can only be sustained by laudable actions of the  descendants."

If you are interested in "flying", please contact me. When I create the next wings, you will get the information among the first.
