Celestial Bodies are a set of pictorial works that represent our home in the universe. Our solar system. This painting is handmade by me; Miguel Angel Aranda.

The planet mercury, the closest to the Sun and with extreme temperatures, has always been presented in gray tones and rocky appearance. In contrast to the reality of the planet, the painting is presented to us with a serene and calm appearance and gesture. With an ash gray tone of velvety appearance that contrasts with the black lines and strokes that hint at the shapes of the face of this planet. It is a painting that transmits serenity. Ideal for any room in the home. And although its small size compared to other paintings in this series, it does not prevent it from being able to monopolize all the attention. A perfect work of art for a minimalist house.

In ancient astronomy, the earliest known mentions of Mercury, made by the Sumerians, date from the third millennium BC.C. The Babylonians (2000-500 BC.C.) also made new observations about the planet, naming it as Nabu or Nebu, the messenger of the gods in their mythology.

Ancient Greek observers called the planet two ways: Apollo when it was visible in the morning sky and Hermes when it was visible at dusk. However, Greek astronomers realized that they were referring to the same celestial body, with Pythagoras being the first to propose the idea.

The series of paintings of Celestial Bodies is composed of ten pictorial works that represent the stars of our solar system. From the Sun to Pluto. Its organic and irregular forms evoke the capricious sense of nature. Then, with a base of acrylics as spot colors generate different shapes and colors that best represent each planet. To finish the work I have painted a human and feminine face to each piece painting in oil the most significant and expressive features of the human being; eyes, nose and mouth. The result is a beautiful and original artistic piece that we can label within a surrealist pop of great visual and colorful impact.

The painting bears a Certificate of Authenticity printed on paper and affixed to the back of the painting.
