oil painting Description

The history of our species is brimming with important cultures that have played a major role in driving forward our collective values and identities. The Babylonian civilization is perhaps one of the most noteworthy collectives of its era, and Virtosu has attempted to pay tribute to this glorious race in this illuminating painting.

The artist has chosen to create a simplistic and almost ordinary background in order to amply highlight the central figure of this creative. The subtle shades of blue and grey offer a mundanity to the piece that allows the audience to fully immerse themselves into every detail of the centerpiece.

This is necessary as well, as the artist has gone to great lengths to place numerous distinct features on this seemingly abstract entity.

The “Babylonian Human” is adorned in a lofty headgear and is seen carrying a decorative staff in order to denote a high social status and a sense of affluence.

The Babylonians have been historically viewed as a civilization that is associated with wealth, power, and influence, and these elements immediately shine brightly while observing the dominant figure.

It is also important to note the use of earthly tones on the Babylonian as the abundance of clay in the region led to the constant use of mudbrick for various decorative purposes. The features of this creation are overwhelmingly painted by the artist and the end result is a figure that immediately pops out of the pages of our history books and into our collective imagination.
