    Civilization Apocalypse

    Here's a new one with a more impressionistic approach to brushstrokes.

    Very apt in these present times.
    Was the idea for the painting based on the book by Lawrence E. Joseph " Apocalypse 2012; An Investigation into Civilization's End"
    A very good painting. It made me think

    Thank You, dear friends!
    The statues You see in the closer range are from one of the many artistic fountains in Rome.
    After all, which other town could better represent the upcoming of a new barbaric age than the one usually called la città eterna (ITA), urbs aeterna (LAT), the eternal town (ENG), la ville eternelle (FR) and which already experienced the fall of an Empire and another decadence in the XVII century, but always remaining a reference and hope to any new birth of a civilized age?
    I wasn't referring much to a natural cataclism, but to the impression that only technology and business seem to matter now, with an impressive cultural and ideal regression and their impossibility to drive the change or even to keep the pace while the stupidity and greed of the circles creating speculation bubbles and misery, unable to use real intelligence and understanding, is back, after their failure, to provide ratings ...

    WOW...Caesar, is that the door way to hell? Scary good painting my friend
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.

    Thank Yoy Semd74. It's a scary painting and a scary thought behind, even if that's Neptune's trident rather than the devil's one ....
