The Price of Wisdom, oroginal painting by Marisa Eichman

The Price of Wisdom, Master of Frenzy and Ecstasy; original painting by Marisa Eichman, Novemenber 2015

I was the model for this recent painting by my wife Marisa Eichman, completed recently. The imagery is based on the Wotan/Woden/Odin mythic stories, and the painting is called “The Price of Wisdom: The Master of Frenzy and Ecstasy”. The image looks very much like me as I looked with a beard at the beginning of 2015. I am cleanshaven now, as part of a new cycle of transformation and En2 (enlightenment and enhancement) practices.
