Panorama - L'Apocalypse (original)

Panorama - L'Apocalypse

TypeOriginal, Acrylique, crayon
Size51 x 68 cm
CommentsFrançois Schuiten: “A monolith pierced at its center suggests a heavenly vision, a new Jerusalem. In an apocalyptic world in glowing lights (which are projected images of war, mass graves, atomic bombs, mixed with symbols of the Apocalypse of St. John), raising the eyes, after this thundering vision has subsided , we go to a garden at sunset. There materializes the presence of a group of naked men and women, as weightlessness.”
