Artwork Description

This was CD cover of metal band. Their music was inspirated by many cultures from east to west, so they asked me to paint Symbol with shinning light in the middle - but all cultures must be included in wheel of unity. Oh Gosh! It took me some time to put it all together. But there is a bit of China (jing jang dragons, a bit of India (lotus flower), Egypt (boat of Ra), Celtic, Slavic, some marks of middle american cultures (two faces) and you can find there some details from vikings too. Again mixture of acryl and watercolors on paper - so combinated technique

You certainly did an amazing job in merging so many cultures into one piece of jewelry! I'd love to see this done in cold hard gold...Oh and Metal Forever!!!

Hi hi ... you targeted that. Exactly. When I was painting this I imagined that I am archeologist and just uncover some tomb from Atlantis. That's why painting this kind of art is so funny

This painting is owe-inspiring and breathtaking! It remids me of an artifact from the ancient toomb of a forgotten ruler of a long lost civilization... I am at a loss for words...

Band name was Lykathea Aflame. They played some kind of mystical doom metal. Something like band: Moonspell on their first CD. Lol! Thank you, I am happy that you like it. Well, I would like to design jewelry, but I am affraid, this things would be a bit hard to do in reality or it would be expensive. Smile
