Cicada , painted today , 36 H x 24 W x 1.5 inches Oils on Canvas , by Sari Grove

Note: photo taken AFTER drawing & painting Cicada , not before ...(I have a 'no tracing from photos policy'...) here is an Ebay Canada link to preview purchase the painting called Cicada by Sari Grove , before it hits the galleries...still wet of course, you will have to wait a bit for delivery ...

In China the phrase 'to shed off the golden cicada skin' is the poetic name of the tactic of using deception to escape danger, specifically of using likenesses/decoys (leaving the old shell) to fool enemies. ( from Wikipedia)
