It was fun while it lasted

I am a king with dirty hands, my fortune is made of sand.
My worth is what I own and I pretended to own the Earth.
I was the king of a castle and now it bursts like a bubble.
I was too greedy to outlast, but it was fun while it lasted.

J'adore le message que cette oeuvre envoie. Ça décrit très bien ce que "l'élite" se dira à la fin de tout. Je garde espoir et la fin sera surement un nouveau commencement. J'adore vos oeuvres, bravo.

Very deep as a drawing and and then with the poem, it's truly food for thought.

That's so incredibly sad. It reminds me of a vampire or some other immortal who lived forever and watched everything crumble.

"And on the pedestal these words appear:
'My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!'
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away."
Percy Shelley's 'Ozymandias'

Humanity's near future if we continue on this path we've taken. Still hoping it's not too late for us to change our ways. Incredible work!

Like the concept. Really looks like he got what he deserved, perhaps, in the end.

I love how you explain the concept of your paintings with poems, and the feelings put into every piece. I love that from your work, the effort and emotion.
