Brunhilda……18 x 24
multi media on canvas
My husband sometimes calls me Brunhilda. I always thought that she was a witch, I did this piece for her.
Initially known as a liberal ruler of great political acumen, she became notorious for her cruelty and avarice.
Brunhilda was raised as an Arian Christian, but upon her marriage to Sigebert, converted to Roman Catholicism. In general, she protected the church and treated Pope Gregory the Great with great respect. He wrote a series of positive letters to her; in 597 he wrote to her about interdicting pagan rites such as tree worship. Gregory of Tours was another favoured cleric; he was a trusted courtier to her and her son from 587 until his death.
All in all I’d say she was a kick ass kinda girl!
