Anna Agneta

mixed media on panel
26 x 18 cm 2022

Anna Agneta is the third wife of famous ornithologist. She stays home, loving and raising their four children. While her spouce was out and about, galavanting in the field, digging up one new bird after the other, little did he know that a fellow naturalist was making fun of him behind his back, denying the origin of a certain species, the tailless mutant of a jungle fowl. Anna Agneta snuck into her husband’s lab and took the poor bird in and loved and raised it as her own fifth child. She never demanded any recognition. Nor did she receive any. Until now.

ANNA AGNETA is selfless. She does what she feels is the right thing to do, even if that means her standing in the background. She sees that quality in you, too. The things you do, come from a place of love. You might feel you’re standing in the shadows, but you will be seen and your will be acknowledged.
