ABOUT THE ARTWORK
Taking inspiration from Hogwarts and the safety Hogwarts affords him, Harry's uniform takes on the guise of armor, to prepare him for battle, or indeed war to come.
Titled to suggest a tower of strength, this theme is reinforced by the central composition of the painting. It is as if Harry is given a spotlight in the center of the stage. Holding his wand tightly to his chest, he gestures as if it were a talisman. Symbolic of his birthright and of his fated connection to Lord Voldemort, Harry's wand is both a blessing and a curse. The series highlights the coexistence of good and evil.
