Full Title: Manifest Destiny: The Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory

Ironically, this was the first space image I had ever planned to do; work on this image spawned two other images – Terra Alia and Homecoming. This image grew out of my musings on exploration and the nature of humanity; upon reflection, I realized that humans have never arrived at a new place without stick (or sword, or gun, or...) firmly in grasp.

As a point of reference, Wikipedia defines manifest destiny as “the belief widely held by Americans in the 19th century that the United States was destined to expand across the continent” – expansionism ordained by God, regardless of the consequences to the individuals who happen to be in the way.
