Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

One of the most important, series, among my work is the series "The sand will cover everything." In this series, I take, images, that were found in, archaeological digs, belong to the great, ancient civilizations, that were in the, Middle East, thousands of years ago. Cultures, that influenced the, Jewish culture, and are mentioned in the, Bible. From the look on those cultures which have been and gone, and with an understanding of the strengths and endless nature, I try to bring to awareness the sense of man's place in the universe of the creation by the encounter between these two images.
I painted an image, of, ancient Egyptian, wall painting which was found in one of the archaeological sites in, Egypt. The Ancient Egyptian painting is one of the wonders of human actions and the world. Despite the greatness of human doings, nature, always covers men and his actions. That image of this ancient painting I covered with mechanical waves that resemble the motion of sand as well as time.
