Atlas holding our world full of trash.

Can he handle it?
I don't think so.

Where can I start on this magnificent piece? Firstly, the manipulation itself is amazingly well constructed and as a piece of work it looks fabulous.

However, I'd like to talk more about the idea behind this piece. I believe it shows perfectly how we have effected the planet. Not only by replacing the globe with a ball of rubbish but with rubbish strewn around atlas' feet. The grey seas and the stormy sky illustrate the gloomy future that lies ahead if we continue with our polluting ways.

My final words are thus:

Take care of the planet and it will take care of us. Abuse it, at it will leave us in ruin.

Salut karim , je n'avais jamais remarquer que cette magnifique creation était sous critique ^^ .

Alors c'est partie, accroche ta ceinture , pré;pare des yeux , je me lance .


:pointr:le fond

Pour commencé , le fond , l'idée d'un fond sombre et nuageux est excellent d'après moi car il montre le coté dramatique de ce qui arrive a Atlas . De plus niveau incrustation par rapport au reste de l'oeuvre , rien a redire.


:pointr: Atlas

Maintenant passons au personnage d'Atlas et de sa boule de détritus. Tout ce qui est incrustation je ne vois rien a redire , si ce n'est autour des pied de ton personnage , je pense que tu aurai put faire mieux au niveau de la lumière , il y a un petit quelque chose qui me chatouille les rétines. De même , la boule de détritus et trop plate a mon goût , pas assez sombre du coté gauche .


:pointr: objet secondaire

Maintenant passons a ce que j'appelle les objets secondaire , tel que le corbeau que je trouve extrêmement plat et moins réaliste que le reste de l'œuvre. Pour ce qui est du piedestal ,
l'incrustation , rien a redire , la bouteille également , très bien, par contre les brush splatter qui sont a certain endroit ne serve pas a grand chose d'après moi .


:pointr:conclusion

en conclusion je dirait que cette creation est vraiment très bien ,malgré quelque erreur de lumière. L'idée de faire porté une boule de détritus a Atlas nous fait bien comprendre ton point de vue au niveau de l'écologie mondial actuel :p j'adore .

Pour moi personnellement cette création traite non seuleument le problème écologiste, mais décrit par excellence,
la vie telle qu'elle est, depuis la naissance jusqu'à le dernier jour, un fardeau sur le dos à porter avec soi-même, composé de toutes les expériences de la vie, le mal de la race humaine, l'injustice, absolument tout, et on doit vivre avec jusquà la fin de la vie!
La couleur sombre représente pour moi que ce monde n est pas la vrai vie!
J'aime beaucoup! excellent travail!

Hi! :happybounce: I wanted to let you know that I featured this piece of art in a news article called, Take Action! Keystone XL Pipeline, which is about the tar sands in Alberta, Canada and how we should take action to stop the installation of an extensive oil pipeline that will destroy a mass of land larger than the United Kingdom!

Please take the time to look at the article, and I will be supremely overjoyed if you also help spread the word! Thank you! :peace:

Maybe, but his representation is often shown as him holding the globe, google it.

yes but being true to the Greek origin of the myth he held the sky, as a punishment for leading the titans in battle against the Olympians.

You aren`t wrong, but the Greeks conceptualized the Sky differently depending the school of thought. The representation varied between holding a Globe, a Celestial Sphere where the constellations were represented and a flat out Disk being separated by Atlas (the other two being Earth and the Oceans). There was also Tartarus encircling the lower levels.
