Wonder Woman by K Henderson

Wonder Woman, 24 x 18, oil on cradled board

Wonder Woman is not technically a Super Hero because she has no Super Powers. She's just your ever day Amazonian who is as Beautiful as Aphrodite, as Strong as Hercules, as Wise as Athena and as Swift as Mercury.

Wonder Woman first appeared in Comics at the beginning of World War II and fought along side our troops against the Evil Axis. That's what this painting is about.

Wonder Woman's war propaganda  included the "Keep 'Em Flying" campaign. The slogan was used in recruiting for the Aviation Cadet Program.

Like Superman, Wonder Wonder disguised herself by putting on a pair of glasses. She instantly became Nurse Diana Prince.

I couldn't find an invisible plane to use in this painting so this blue game piece represents both Wonder Woman's plane and the plane that Steve Trevor crashed on Paradise Island

Rounding out the painting is the Golden Lasso of Truth and the bullet deflecting Bracelets
