Hawthorn Hawks – Luke Hodge – The Warrior – Signed and Framed Jamie Cooper Limited Edition Print
The ultimate tribute to an inspirational Hawthorn leader.
From the brush of acclaimed AFL artist, Jamie Cooper comes this powerful portrait of one of the club’s greatest leaders.
The original life sized oil painting, from which this print has been meticulously reproduced, depicts Luke in a pose that defines him as a player.
A true on field leader and loyal son to the Hawthorn Football Club, he strides towards us, leading his men, bloodied, bruised and battered, but with a steely eyed focus and unshakable spirit.
This dynamic image is full of grit and determination, of unwavering focus on the job at hand and a fitting tribute to a man that embodies everything that a footballer should be… and everything this proud club stands for. Courage, sacrifice and loyalty.
Cooper has reserved his sporting canvases for the truly elite athletes of our national game. There can be no doubt that Luke belongs amongst them, a player universally admired by his peers and AFL fans alike.
In the Artists words… “I’ve deliberately enhanced Luke’s features in this portrait. I wanted to create a gladiatorial mood, an almost superhero quality to the figure. Within the AFL world there are few that have reached the heights of on field success and attained the level of respect that he has, from the entire AFL community.
He is not a 200cm giant nor does he run like the wind, but he’s one of the toughest, truest footballers you will ever see. To the fans… he is a giant, a superhero, a loyal Hawk warrior who has lead this club through one of the greatest eras in it’s illustrious history.
I wanted to capture the intensity of that famous “game face” that I think sums him up. No matter what he has to go through, whether it be backing into another pack, playing with injury, putting his head in harms way, time and time again… he will not alter his focus from the job at hand.
He fully deserves to be captured in oils… he is a Hawthorn masterpiece!
