X - Ruota di Fortuna/Wheel of Fortune
The Monk’s Tale by Chaucer
“I will bewail in manner of tragedy
The ills of those that stood in high degree
And fell so far there was no remedy
To bring them out of their adversity:
For certain ‘tis when fortune wills to flee,
There may no man, the course of her withhold:
Let no man trust in blind prosperity:
Be warned by these examples true and old.”
The Wheel of Fortune has fascinated me and addressed my art work as an artist for many decades. The theme of generational continuity through all ages and cultures is summed up by the enclosed quote by the English poet of the 14th century that human psychology and the Fates are for every age in this universe.
As an artist the constellations fascinate me in their richness in myth, philosophy, our histories through from ancient times. Here in the Southern Hemisphere I see the Southern Cross outside my bedroom window in the clearness of balmy summer nights. The richness of the celestial “Wheel of Fortune”
