This painting deals with success and destruction, the usual characteristics that most empires historically experience. We also live in an age of conspiracies theories, I think this was in the back of my mind at the time I conceived of this composition which itself explains some of the imagery used. Its up to the viewer to ultimately decide what they take or how they take these notions. But I always like to pull this painting out in time for election day.
