In the recent aggression between Georgia’s Mikheil Saakashvili and Vladimir Putin, according to The New Yorker’s recent piece, “Marching Through Georgia” by Wendell Steavenson, Putin was not the sole aggressor. Aside from everything else, the hatred is personal and the personal meeting between these two is described in the piece. Someone said it was between a giant man from a tiny country and a tiny man from a giant one. Clearly the stuff of “heroic battles”. This frieze, done for Chris Curry, tried to tell the story in the faces and body language. And no blood, or cadmium red, used.
