Oil on canvas 45”x42”

Although astronomical observations made by travellers
proved that earth is curved, many continued to believe that
earth is flat. Most of the legends believe that the flat earth is
surrounded by high mountains.

Flat earth is no longer popularly held concept.  There is  a minuscule minority which holds this belief today.  This minuscule minority is probably holds this belief due to distrust in science and trust in scriptures.  The painting has been inspired by the concept of flat earth.  Usually scriptures demanded that the flat earth is circular in shape and is surrounded by mountains so high that it is impossible for any living being to cross it. The inspirational theme behind this painting is that the if the earth is flat then the cosmos is cube.  Of course this view is not  held by the flat earth theorists.
