Ancestral Aspirations

Deep into the roots of our species there was much superstition driven by the belief that spirits and gods controlled our destiny. Slowly, as we evolved towards the realization that we are not the center of the universe, we moved towards a more enlightened view. This painting tries to capture the mystical way of life for our distant ancestors and their aspirations that have led us to where we are now and to what we will become.
