"Allegory of Peace and War" ( portrait of Maja)

"Allegory of Peace and War" the image is a metaphor of the eternal battle between good and evil in it's most direct manifestation. Painted in a city that was torn apart during a war only 2 decades ago, the piece is depicting a female character balancing two jars, one with olives and one with a Siamese fighting fish. Known to be extremely aggressive to it's kind, just like humans, the fish in a closed jar is symbolizing war, while the olives in the open jar are symbolizing piece.
