"Descend to Hell" by IosifChezan "Descend to Hell" by IosifChezan
Visit more of my religious art at [link]
My last "touchable" (physically, and maybe for some in other ways too:P ) artwork...

Theme:"The Descend into Hell" in a personal view.
Size: aprox. 200 cm x 160 cm
Tehnique: acrylic on pre-shaped burnt wood, with gold and silver leafs.
The four pieces blended together depict:

-the main is the descent into "Hell"(HELL would be only blindness along with the miss, the regret, the long , the lust till madness for beauty, love, altruism, ... hell would be eternal solitude without sharing minds in all the possible knowledge and potency of creating at will BEAUTY!), where a great Human descend through the locked, never broken before Dark Gates of Sorrow, where Virgil, Plato, Caesar or King Solomon, Orpheus and his precious wife, Adam or Eve... and all who entered became slaves of sorrow... A great Human with such a power and beauty in his mind, trying to bring to all living and dead humankind the most precious gift for our thirst of existence: Life beyond death, Life without end, youth without getting old, ...and BEAUTY, POWER, OMNIPOTENCE. Adam and Eve are depicted at his feet raising from tombs regaining their "eyes light "in pain of such wonder, begging not to be another sadistic dream. The tormented souls from common people to kings and Cesaers, once poor or rich, kind or evil, all they are crying out, demanding or imploring for redemption.

-the two wings depict the two Archangels (i was asked that the Michael arch. should be somehow alike with my customer's little son David of 5 years old regarding face features, who is in love with archangels)

- the third piece attached depict the "fallen/defeated but not dead" angel of death... with his unmerciful scythe always bleeding of hunger for the red of human juice of life... "defeated but not dead" because we are still dying..sadly.

The descent who settled in definitive the end of the tyrannical dominion of Darkness over the Earth. The "death" of the old world, prodigiously transformed into Art.

Simply extraordinary!
