"Lady Godiva" portrays the burden of sacrifice for the good of the many. The downward arc of the horse’s body, from tail to head, and Godiva’s conforming posture illustrates the arduousness of that sacrifice as well as the strain under which the people of Coventry toiled under the heavy taxation imposed by Lady Godiva’s Husband.
Serafine studied sculpture at Arida Arts Inc., Seravezza, Italy, and the National Academy of Design and the Educational Alliance in New York, USA. She has also studied painting and design at Mes Illusions, Les Cerqueux Sous Passavant, France. Serafine takes inspiration from the grace of classical form embodied by the works of Michelangelo and Donatello. Human and animal forms are common elements in Lilien’s work. She now lives in Alameda, California and her work is featured exclusively at Galerie Elektra.
