Maximillian, portrait of a pigeon. Max has a huge personality, which shows in this dramatic portrait painting. Deep shadows and crisp highlights bring out contrast and structure. Metal leafing forms the background, with decorative embellishments that match the frame's filigree design. A halo completes this regal piece, referencing Byzantine icon paintings of saints and martyrs. The painting panel sits above the frame, with the pigeon portrait wrapping around the edges and emphasizing depth.
