The immortal scepter

In this product, weused Baroque era`s Flemish painter Pieter Paul Rubens and Italian painterCaravaggio`s art works. Thefemale figure in the middle of the dress is from Rubens' Portrait of MariaSerra Pallavicino. According to records,she was a member of the Pallavicino family, a noble family from the Genoaregion of Italy, and the painting may have been made to commemorate hermarriage. The youths on the side are part of Caravaggio's Youth with a Ram that painted in 1602, which is one of the John the Baptist series. The youth is John the Baptist, a characterwho appeared in the New Testament. John converted to Christianity and baptized.He is considered a prophet and honoured as a saint in many Christiantraditions. John is often depicted in paintings with a lamb representing theatonement for sins. The painting thus contains the meaning of bringing peopleto repentance through John's teaching and seeking forgiveness for the sins theyhave committed.

In this time‘s production, our designer focused on the point of "seeking forgiveness of sins". In the printing we made an image of young men seeking forgiveness in front of a beautiful queen. The woman figure in the center sits like a queen on her throne, looking down at the world. The black and white checker pattern at the background represents her majesty, and the youths on the side, attracted by her beauty and power, fall before her and seek forgiveness for their sins. Thus, in the design of this printing, the designer has created a world view which everyone is charmed and submissive by the woman with supreme beauty and power.
