“She is descending into the chaos of a planet in the process of creating enough stability to support life. She brings an indispensable gift to this new beginning beauty. She is the Deva of Roses.” – Michael Parkes

Expand your collection of art by visiting the magnificent Marcus Ashley Gallery in Lake Tahoe. Whether you visit in person or online, you’ll find that the gallery’s eclectic array of exhibits is worth a look. Besides its intriguing display of Michael Parkes art, the gallery also showcases bronze sculptures, metal figurines, glass art, and paintings in several mediums.

The artist often refers to the goddesses in his paintings as devas, a term used widely in Vedic scripts. Like her Greek analog, Aphrodite, Venus has been called the goddess of roses, a symbolic reference to her beauty and love. Parkes places the goddess at the precipice, looking down on a chaotic world. With her trusty leopard by her side, she is ready to descend into the chaos to bring about order and stability.

The artist projects his fantastical imagination to this fine art print that is equal parts powerful and beautiful. Delicate, translucent tones and meticulous brushstrokes create a dreamy finish. Descending will look lovely by a window or on a large wall alongside other fine art prints by Parkes.
