The Golem

This was a small drawing I did in 2002 that is now in a private collection:

The Golem, 2002, ink on paper, 9" x 7"

The Golem was a creature made of clay that came to life to protect the Jewish people of Prague, I believe. Coincidentally, the Golem also featured in Michael Chabon’s Kavalier and Clay, but that’s another story…

In 2004, I did a color version of the same image:

The Golem, 2004, acrylic on plywood, 24" x 19.75".

The Golem, 2004, acrylic on plywood, 24" x 19.75".

As much of my work deals with mythologies, I’ll probably create another golem someday.

And Let’s Not Forget Cyclops

The eye has it. Looking over the Medusa images below, it reminds me I should do a similar “looking back” feature on Cyclops. Here are some of my versions of him:
