Artwork Description

Concept piece. The mines on an alien world. The metals dug from the mountians are smelted into the riches of the city Satro-Mapes.
Somehow I think this image is a response to the Iraq war.

That's absolutely fantastic.The mines look like faces, crying fire. the background really reminds me of Aztec or Inca temples. really good stuff.

The burning plumes of smoke are definitely reminiscent of burning oil wells. And there's no question that oil has something to do with this war. Nice sense of depth and atmosphere.

Art at its best.
