An artwork I created for the contest "Change" and it was inspired by Michelangelo's visualization of the Second Coming. A small part of his huge fresco at Sistine Chapel which i was lucky enough to see in person. 

Rebirth is the ultimate Change, a positive one that comes when a long negative event comes to an end. It can be a new way of life, a significant change of character or ideas. It is the spring that comes after a long winter or an overwhelming desire after years of emptiness.When I started the Mechanicus collage series the idea was to create a visual dialogue with the viewers and make them think what is that makes us human. Is it the human body that we all have and recognize in each other, is it sth else? Maybe the intellect, the spirit inside while the body is just a fleshy contract that helps us move around and interact with each other. Back then i found this quote by C.S Lewis which in my opinion summarizes everything.

You don't have a Soul.
You are a Soul.
You have a Body.

The new decade brought tremendous changes in our lives and maybe it is time to revisit this ideas. A body can be of flesh, a body can be mechanical or even virtual.

Amazing piece and concept George. On earth the body can also be seen as our temple. And it's important what we feed it ~ In all ways. We can connect to everything on our planet especially other people, when we stop long enough to take a fresh breath and respond in the moment.

hey, my pleasure George! it had been a while since I admired your pieces but always came too late ;) honored and thrilled to finally give one a loving home! Funny enough, I visited the Sistine chapel for the first time last February just before Italy (and the whole world) had to go on lockdown, which makes this one all the more meaningful to me

I feel honored also to have an artwork as part of you collection and thank you for your kind words El Castor:) You really made it in the nick of time,lol. I visited Rome at 2018 and Sistine chapel was such an inspiring experience.

Actually the creation of Rebirth was kind of unscheduled, i was not sure if the original handcut collage was good enough to be digitally manipulated and tokenized. But the Cryptoart Renaissance got me very inspired and memories and ideas came in mind. I like the way Jesus is portrait in this scene, like a giant, a champion of humanity ready to lead us in a bright future and having Mary by his side in a very feminine pose. I must say i am not a religious person but i was touched by this image of human glory:)
