Mercury is a hand-painted work of art by artist Miguel Ángel Aranda. It is part of the Celestial Bodies series of paintings, which represents the planets of our solar system. Despite the extreme temperatures and the gray tones of the planet, the work transmits a sensation of serenity and tranquility thanks to its ash gray tone and the black lines that hint at the shapes of the planet's face.

The Celestial Bodies series is made up of ten pictorial works, each representing a star in our solar system, from the Sun to Pluto. The celestial bodies are presented with organic and irregular shapes, which evoke the capricious sense of nature. To represent them, the artist has used acrylics as flat colors and has painted the most significant and expressive features of the human being, such as eyes, nose and mouth, in oil. The result is a series of original and colorful works of art with a striking visual impact.

In ancient history, the Sumerians made the first known mentions of Mercury in the third millennium BCE, and the Babylonians made further observations of the planet. The Greeks called the planet Apollo or Hermes, depending on whether it was visible in the morning or evening sky. The Celestial Bodies series of paintings pays homage to these celestial bodies and their importance in human culture.

The Mercury artwork is a unique and original piece of art, which is carefully wrapped before being shipped. Shipping is certified and a tracking number is provided. The painting has a Certificate of Authenticity printed on paper and attached to the back of the painting. Ideal for any room in the home, it is perfect for a minimalist home.
