The aim of this painting is to visualize the similarities that are existing between the cosmical cycles and that of the civilization process. It is also the cover for a music album that features an opera with the same title. The description of that album will go into more detail about the used symbolism.
This work does not have the ambition to be overwhelming original, but often limits itself to recycle existing ideas and themes in a coherent contemporary context.
This can be illustrated by having a close look at the painting. It restyles much of the themes and subjects that have been developed by Salvador Dali in some of his lesser-known creations.
