Sciatica: a Painting

My wife Julia brought me one of those concertina-folded Chinese books from Changsha in China. I have used it to create a long picture, which is here divided up into the folds that you would see when opening the book at any place. The picture concerns a bout with sciatica, a painful affliction of the nerves of the lower back and legs.

The painting is done in mixed media including inks, watercolours and oil pastels.
