Surrealist painting with a satellite and a woman kneeling on the earth. The name Elijah is a biblical name but also is the name of a Russian spiritual leader of the Georgian Orthodox Church who has to do with the Russian-Georgian War. The painting had political undertones as well as biblical ones. Because of the rocket ship, the painting might allude to the Russian- American Space Race in the 60's. The work is signed, titled and dated on the back of the canvas. Canvas is not framed.
