António Guterres

A portrait of António Guterres, the 9th Secretary-General of the United Nations.  I wanted to convey the sense of a global organization entangled within its own web of bureaucracy.  The owl on his shoulder, carries a branch representing war, instead of an olive branch which typically symbolizes peace.   The owl, a symbol of the shadow groups, or the “elites”, embodies the society of powerful known unknowns, the eye at the apex of the pyramid.
