TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus is important astronomically as it represented, as did Aries, the Spring equinox in the early Bronze age. The reason that different signs can be found in the sky at the equinox and solstices is due to a shift in the star positions over time. As the ages progress different signs will fill the same slot.

The constellations were remembered by different cultures in stories and myths. It was a way of memorising and explaining the patterns of the sky. The Greeks had a myth that related to Taurus being the abduction of Europa by Zeus disguised as a bull. This is a thinly disguised fertility myth as can be seen in another similar version where every spring when Persephone, a fertility goddess, returns to the land, Cerus the bull returns to the land to join her. She sits upon his back and he runs her through the fields, allowing her to set all of the plants in bloom as they ride by. In the Autumn when Persephone returns to Hades, Cerus returns to the sky as the Taurus constellation.

In Babylonia this constellation was known as ‘the bull of heaven’ and associated with myths of Gilgamesh. So it is as old the zodiac itself.

The qualities of a Taurus personality are the essence of the bull, being strength, stubbornness, persistence and dependability.

Taurus is a limited edition "Giclée" print of the original painting, made with archival pigment inks on heavy stock, natural white (not bleached) fine art etching paper. The matte etching paper nicely presents the brushstrokes and texture of the original painting.
All prints are signed and numbered by the original artist in the border beneath the image and come with a certificate of authenticity and an embossed stamp by the master printer.

Derived from the French, "giclée" means "sprayed" and is an advanced digital printmaking technology involving archival quality inks that are finely jet streamed onto fine archival papers. Giclee printing provides superior color accuracy and incredible detail over other modes of reproduction.

Giclee prints can be found in New York’s Metropolitan Museum as well as galleries and auction houses throughout the world. [/su_column]

Incredible artwork! Really unique! Gives unique feeling in the room where we have it and its energy feels very alive. It projects something special to the whole house; like a divine protection.

The intersection of true artful human expression and well-tended subconscious emanations - this is how I see Jake's art, and especially 'Gemini.'
I was delighted to come across Jake's art. The process of discovery and acquisition of the print have been wonderfully human and pleasant. Mark is an absolute delight in correspondence. I can't wait to have the print back from the framers' and hang it on my wall. I may just place a chair before it and sit with it when I feel in need of a meaningful conversation.
Thank you, Jake & Mark

Dit is het tweede werk dat ik heb gekocht van Jake. Het intrigerende The Lady Vanishes uit 2013 smaakte naar meer, waarop ik besloot mijn verzameling aan te vullen met Spiritus Sanctus, een totaal ander werk (kleiner en op op paneel) uit 2015. Gekocht via de website, dus een gokje hoe het zou uitpakken. Maar ik heb er geen spijt van. Het is een mooie uitbreiding, waar ik met veel plezier en bewondering van geniet.

Great quality and work! Very good communication with the provider and hand-signed by Jake ! A piece of art that finds its “owner” by the energy level.
