for Independence, Cedar Revolution, National Resurgence
A vast human crowd of unprecedented number, covering
the ground as far as eye can see, plunges us into deepest emotion –
venerable grandsires, babies in arms, children and ardent youth, all
ages, men and women, all children of the Lebanese fatherland.
The tides of humanity can scarce be distinguished from those of the wide Mediterranean in front. The whole world regards us astounded. We have gone beyond our earth-bound frontiers to distant lands to reach hearts and to stir spirits and noble feeling. We take consciousness of all existence, inspired by our prayerful saints and the foundations of civilisation laid here six thousand years ago.
Martyr’s Square is a very hive in the wide
world or rather a world within this hive, here where life seethes and
overflows, to stir this whole region from its centuries-old sleep.
First steps of the painting...
full of movement.
The banners are lost in the distant horizons, shades of red, white, blue and grey dominating the whole. It is a real hymn of joy, of hope, and of love of country, an astounding revolution of the cedars. The oils flow in rich abundance, the inert matter transforming itself into something warm and alive and making of the work a poem and achievement of art.
There is a life which is revolutionary, contagious, epidemic, a human revolution of love, purity and innocence flowing over the frontiers. Just as our forebears spread the alphabet across the world, so we shall sow in distant fields our revolutionary actions to free the world.
