Mr. Greed

This painting has an unusual story. Once I was hired by a man who wanted me to depict himself as the Lord of Greed. He wanted a sword in his hands and golden wings and standing on top of a pile of gold and riches. I have no idea why, maybe he was a stockbroker from New York City, or maybe he wanted to depict himself this way and put this painting on the wall in his office to attract money or to amaze people coming to him. I can only guess what his intentions were as he never spoke about it. It was a small painting, but very unusual, and the client really liked it.
