The Reincarnation of Hypatia
2017 Oil on canvas

Hypatia (Approx 350 AD - March 415 AD) was born in Alexandria, Egypt. She was an accomplished mathematician, astronomer, and philosopher. The victim of a brutal murder, she had her skin scraped away with oyster shells and her body was burned.
"The Reincarnation of Hypatia," then, becomes a wonderful expression of revenge and justice, for taking on the form of a fire breathing dragon she'd be able to take down the men who killed her with ease.
