The town of Untash by IRCSS The town of Untash by IRCSS
Yeah, sooo.... ^^
This is one of my top 10 favorite places on earth, Choga zanbil (here is wiki for more info en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chogha_Z… ). Nowdays there is not much left of it but it is still the best preserved zigurat in the world. The zigurat is old, really old :D to give u an idea of how old it is, heard of prince of persia? this zigurat was built before the persian empire was created. :D

I did this painting for two reasons: first, to see how much I have improve compared to last year fc01.deviantart.net/fs71/i/201… I think it is fair to say considering the fact that I don't do art in school and I don't have a teacher, my improvement is acceptable, no?

Second, to use it as a way to ask the fellow Iranians and of course the Iranian government to take a better care of this national treasure. The way it is now it is only a matter of time before the site is destroyed. It has been standing proud for thousands of years lets keep it that way :aww:

This took me around 2 -3 to finish. at the end it got really boring, because I generally hate painting details if I am not painting nature.

Hope you like it:D

چغازنبیل

توضیح بیشتر که لازم نیست !! ^^

این نیایشگاه برای هزاران سال سالم مانده است، از دولت خواهش می کنم که نگهداری لازمه را انجام دهد.

On the Road to Untash!
Going there to make a splash!
Will get fame and cash when I walk to Untash!
This task I will surely do, when I find my other shoe!

Looks great.

I loved your use of texture. I feel the energy of the place in the strokes you used. I really dislike painting landscapes but you made it feel so alive and interesting. It's a really strong piece. Well done! :)
