Life Eternal


The artists from the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood art era (founded 1848) produced some of my favorite works by it's many artists of that time. The Pre-Raphael movement's intention was to reform art by rejecting what it considered a mechanistic, unfeeling approach to its depictions, and to restore art to classical elegance.

This is my art essay. In it, I am expressing both the joy of bringing a child into the world - classical, elegant; and the horror - 
mechanistic and unfeeling - of infanticide going on in abortion factories in this country. Death is forever. Whom do we kill? And, why?

In art, Life is forever.
