This diptych depicts a popular cathedral in the small town of Amalfi, along the south-western coast of Italy. I chose to once again incorporate a firey colour scheme to evoke the notion of a spiritual fire within an individual. By splitting the image horizontally by two canvases, a disparacy is shown between the darker (sinful) bottom and the lighter (forgiving) top, which alludes to the divine.
