This is a oil on canvas appropriation (copy) and study of 'Companions of fear' by surrealist master Rene Magritte. It's one of his lesser known paintings.

Done by a NZ artist in 2017.

The painting measures 410mm x 410mm x 25mm

The sides of the canvas have been painted white.

(from a review published of Magritte's painting): "One of the universal symbols of shamanism and even of some kind of strange, inner fear of every human being are the owls and the grouses and ravens. The owls are the prime night birds, with it's mystery full sounds resounding everywhere from pastures to the city streets. The grouses are the prime inhabitants of the mountain tops and peaks, mysterious places where the wind blows stronger than any other place and are symbols of loneliness and the immenseness of the world below them"
"Magritte magistate represents the three birds as symbols of some kind of ancient human fear, or the companions of our fears, the companions of our uttermost frightening fears of lost, despair and loneliness. The birds are growing from herbs in the soil by unknown reasons, maybe representing it's as "roots" or ancient recognized symbols associated with fear." Please click here to ask a question
