About the Above Painting, Passage of the Wisdom Keeper
Passage of the Wisdom Keeper, 20 x 40, Oil on Panel, by Paul Bond, is used with the artist’s permission. According to the artist, “This painting is about knowledge versus wisdom, and also how the wisdom we gain in our lives is one of the few possessions we carry with us to the end. Perhaps the thing of most value that we pass onto future generations. The bird pulling the apple tree always carries its source of shelter and food. Such is wisdom. Once gained it is never lost. The apple tree traditionally symbolizes knowledge, but the strenuous passage across the sea represents the journey of experience through which that knowledge transforms into wisdom.”
