Art traces back to the creation of man. Much of what we know from the ancient world comes from artists' renditions of the events. Wall carvings and paintings, statues, jewelry, pottery, and many other variations of crafts are sometimes all that's left of entire civilizations. This is the inspiration for my original painting of Ahura Mazda.
I was inspired by this ancient zoorastarian god simply because of how he is always depicted, either sprouting his own wings, or sitting in some sort of flying device, high above the heads of the people, in the air. I just love old stuff!
