This is a truly original piece . It was inspired by a german friend's painting of a sphere covered in hieroglyphics but is entirely different in scope and execution.
I wanted to depict something as wide ranging and huge in scope but with more recognisable figures and buildings, all things that pertain to the world we live in, its weather, people, movement,landscapes, seas and cosmos. It has a biblical feel which is what i was aiming for, and there is much to read into it, discover and recognise, .....if you look closely!
It took a very long time, hence its slightly higher price tag than the rest of my work. but I loved doing it. I would love it to live in someone's apartment or house and give them pleasure every time they saw it.
