AH yes, the Tower of Babel. God was displeased with people who wanted to build a tower that reached to heaven. Very well done. I can't help but wonder, was this taken fro an Encylclopedia or something? I have seen this before.

According to flawed Bible chronology, Nimrod was the grandson of Noah, and the Flood reduced the world population to 8 people ! No way all these workmen, townspeople, etc. could exist by king Nimrod's time.

Also note on the right side, details of construction technology of Western europe in the 16th century. This is one of the few evidences of such machinery we have today, just as no trebuchet (top level catapult) survives from medieval times, tho we did have blueprints detailed enough to build a new one and have it throw a grand piano some hundreds of feet (trebuchets were used to smash huge holes in castle walls, in siege operations !)

Probably not long, he just added the single person pointing in the foreground to a famous 16th century painting.

this is what he said to someone else, "Yes, I painted everything like Bruegel! It was an order for a replica and I added myself... :) "

Right. Well, he should make that clear in the description, because there appear to be a lot of people who are believing that this is all his work.

This building, if it existed in real life, would put the pyramids of Egypt and the idem of America to shame! I wonder how tall it would be.

Hello Boykokolev,

Your technique is (as always) superb. We don't even have to talk about that.
The real interesting part is when you compare your version of the Tower of Babel with the original [link]
As far as I can see the only difference is you being there, giving directions to the people. The binding factor that lacks in the original.
Or. the interpretor ;-)
As you know, according to the bible, the construction of the Tower of Babel was never finished due to language problems. People just did not understand each other anymore. May you reunite them !

So you painted the entire scene just like Bruegel's? I'm just curious because I'd be really impressed if you did.
