This project was on my bucket list and was planned and prepared for more than 6 month because of all the people which are involved in. It is my thematic examination of the antic, not identified place Golgota, the origin of the Occident. Since I like to work with symbolism, there are many hints and metaphors hidden in the picture. Michael, holding the lance, In Christianity, Michael is particularly regarded as the conqueror of the devil in the form of the dragon (hell fall) as well as the leader of the heavenly host, "the highest general of the armed forces of the Lord, a ruler who owned this lance was considered invincible. It was the visible sign that his power emanated from God and that he was Christ's representative. Conquistador: for the exploitation and conquest of the natives of the new world.
