The Death of Abimelech

The Death of Abimelech

from 25.00

Oilgraph on wooden panel // 24” x 36”

Abimelech’s skull had been crushed by the millstone thrown by a woman. He then cries out to his armor bearer to thrust his own sword into him as he begged not to die at the hands of a woman. Kevissimo used an actor that had been severely injured in a motorcycle accident years before. A massive scar and severe dent in his skull led to a life like resemblance to what Abimelech’s blow may have looked like. Kevissimo added propotionate amounts of blood and glued a bone fragment along the edge of the scar to create the scenario.

This oligraph was painted live October 18, 2012.
