Mantis I, 2019

oil on canvas, 100 x 100 cm

signed and dated on the reverse: '[signature] | 2019'

This mantis is a member of a big band (meet also another member).
She's always the first on the stage, first to present the music. Her favourite instrument is a trombone. But not a typical one. 
A favourite flute distiller makes her sounds stronger and clearer than any living frontman's toy. One could say she's addicted to her music. She also loves the taste...
