About The Artwork:

Titled "Atlantis," this black-and-white illustration offers a mesmerizing glimpse into the depths and turbulence of human emotion. At its center, a sword emerges from the sea, surrounded by intricate details beneath the water's surface. Waves cascade around the sword, symbolizing the ebb and flow of life, the ever-changing nature of existence, and the relentless passage of time.

The sword carries potent symbolism, representing power, strength, and courage. It evokes notions of conquest, honor, and the quest for truth and justice. Rising from the depths, the sword hints at ancient mysteries and the echoes of forgotten legends, inviting viewers to delve into the depths of history and myth.

An anchor lies amidst the underwater scene, its sturdy form contrasting with the fluidity of the waves. Symbolizing stability, security, and resilience, the anchor grounds the composition, serving as a reminder of the importance of staying rooted amidst life's turbulent currents. It suggests the need for balance, steadfastness, and the ability to weather life's storms.

Beneath the surface, a myriad of intricate details unfolds, from pine cones to sea turtles and leaves, each adding depth to the narrative. These elements hint at the richness and diversity of our human nature, while also symbolizing resilience, adaptation, and the interconnectedness of all living beings.

When all these symbols are combined, "Atlantis" emerges as a captivating exploration of the human experience. Through its evocative imagery and rich symbolism, this artwork serves as a portal to the depths of imagination and reflection.

"It is always important to know when something has reached its end. Closing circles, shutting doors, finishing chapters, it doesn't matter what we call it; what matters is to leave in the past those moments in life that are over." ― Paulo Coelho
