This piece is called “Ascent of Man and the Destruction of Magic”.

It was created for the ArtOrder Inspiration challenge.

Inspirations are my favourite artists and a recent trip to the MET where I saw even more beautiful works of sculpture and ancient crafts.

Klimt, Mucha, Herbert Draper, Bouguereau, Waterhouse, Frazetta, and a sculpture called “Mourning Victory” from the Melvin Memorial were all inspirations for this.

Medium is Ballpoint pen on Moleskine, 22k Gold Leaf applique and some Digital retouching.
