Amor vincit omnia

Roman poet Virgil, writing way back in 38 BC, wrote ‘Omnia vincit amor et nos cedars amori’ which I’m sure we’re all aware translates as ‘Love conquers all; let us too, yield to love’. Which is a lovely sentiment so we ‘borrowed’ it. We’ve decided to go with the punchier, truncated version of ‘Omnia vincit amor’ and have left it in its original latin because quotes always sound classier in latin. 

That’s about all you’re getting by way of explanation for today’s piece. Quite why the lady is in purple is for us to know and you to find out however. We can’t just spoon feed you everything…

She’s A2 in size and made using the magic of acrylic, spray paint and paint pen. If you’d like this mysterious lady and her ancient quote to adorn your wall just drop us a line or you may find her on our Big Cartel page some time soon.

Cheers
