Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Oil, Enamel, Paint and Wax on Canvas.

As the eternal fire is raging on, the agony is unbearable. Dante's Inferno, the gates to hell are opened for the masses of unbelievers. Worldly philosophies and opinions don't matter anymore. Screams, tears, excruciating pain and torment of never satisfying desires, ... a never-ending hopeless eternity apart from God's presence has begun. Original painting by Dietmar Scherf (2017). Signed, titled and dated by Artist Dietmar Scherf with Certificate of Authenticity.

Media: Initially, the artwork is "baptized" with fire to purify it as candle wax is applied to the canvas. After that like all of Scherf's canvas paintings, the canvas is covered in black paint. Then various types of paints (oil, acrylic, enamel, metallics, etc.) are carefully applied with various techniques to create this exceptional original masterpiece. This artwork also features the typical Scherf ornaments unique to his original paintings. A very small piece of Dietmar Scherf's DNA is also embedded in a wax cocoon on the canvas. During the finishing process of the artwork, high-quality varnish is applied for protection. This rare masterpiece artwork has been created on a stretched canvas over a 1.5" thick wooden frame and is ready to hang.
