Description: “Athene’s Shield” by Hendrik De Ley was completed over a period of 16 months and completed in 2014. The painting is a well-known example of the artist’s unique pointillist style in acrylics and metallic paints. The painting is also a prime example of Hendrik De Ley’s uncanny ability to create a transcendent effect by means of meticulous detail and patience. As is the case with many of his other masterpieces, Hendrik De Ley painted the piece using his trademark technique, i.e. spontaneously without any planning or preliminary lines before he applied paint to canvas.
Original painting: Currently part of the De Ley Collection in South Africa. For sales & bidding inquiries regarding the original, please contact the curator at
