Title: Antikythera

Description of artwork: The Antikythera Mechanism is an ancient orrery much alike to the astronomical clock that we know today. It was used to predict astronomical positions for calendrical purposes.  Since it was also used to predict when can people see certain constellations, I used the famous constellation Andromeda, the chained princess, to also represent that the artifact is from the country Greece. The artifact was found on the Antikythera shipwreck thus explaining the sea theme, the pieces of wood, and the silhouette of a shipwreck at the background. You can also see the artifact which is composed of gears and is rusted while buried in the sand.

hope you guys like it~

PS. After 84 years!!! I'm finally done! phew! I've put every effort I had to this drawing. EVERYTHING IS FREEHANDED. NOT ONE SINGLE THING WAS TAKEN FROM GOOGLE. It's a miracle I'm still alive ^^;
