This very weighty and important subject is as relevant right now as it was in the 16th Century.
That was when a Dutch engraving by artist Pieter van der Borcht the Elder managed to capture the complexity and challenging nature of geopolitics and ruling in a country with many different ideologies and in the midst of a culture war.
The different ideologies and philosophies are show by the heads of different animals appearing like a scary hydra with many heads jostling for attention. This painting seems to be loud and reflects the confusing nature of having many voices all jockeying for power. The potency of the imagery is still as powerful today as it was back then.
