The Baptist

Format: 841*594
Medium: Hand-made Inks and Graphite on Somerset 300 gsm paper
When reading this Ted Hughes poem, I had a vision of a cliched image of a baby being carried by a crane. However, I changed this timeless image by using a pelican instead of a crane. The pelican is outstretched in a cross motif to strengthen the Christian theme of the poem.
