The Temple of Atlantis Picture
This piece was a part of an exhibition I held in Horsham, January 2008.
All the pieces were based on seafaring lore and legends and I was particularly interested in the Kraken. I also looked at the ancient mythology of mermaids, Plato's Atlantis and the superstitions of sailors.
After reading some of Plato's writings of Atlantis I was inspired to get my thoughts onto paper. The Temple of Atlantis is a somewhat abstract illustration, playing on Plato's accounts of the obvious wealth and importance that the temple represented. It is utterly conceptual.
