What the art piece aims to depict
Planet Mars is the second smallest planet after Mercury and is placed fourth from the sun. The planet which is also referred to as the Red Planet has been severely visited by Astronauts, where studies on its habitability and possibility of extant life are still in course. This art piece aims to showcase the artistic nature of the planet, taken from a given angle. The art piece also showcases the reason behind the planet getting referred to as the Red Planet. From the art piece, the shape of the planet, its background and how the humans view it are showcased. The color combination and the measurements of the piece on a digital platform can also be highlighted.
This art piece captures the imagination of the public in a way that books, journals or even spoken words cannot. It can be used by astronomers as a way of communicating to the public about the great looks of the planet and events behind its discovery. Public imagination is critical, since not all the individuals can get to go to the planet, but can get to imagine how it looks like through the help of such an art piece.
All the features, the colors and the background image on the piece are inspired by the space photos taken by the astronauts in their course of visiting the planet. However, some of the features many have been left behind considering the size of the art piece and the complexity of some of these features. There is the use of dark background in the art piece as a way of enabling one to easily identify with the planet mars and all the other planets that follow it.
