Artist's description:

This was the first of my "Beyond" series and was inspired by the story of the colour, Ultramarine, which this painting mainly is. The pigment for this paint came from crushed lapis lazuli and was highly expensive and as a result was used only for very important figures in paintings. As the pigment came from far away lands, Italian artists called it ultramarine which translates to 'beyond the sea'
I used gold in this to highlight the value of this pigment to the early artists.
