PAX is a fine art poster produced from an original Benjamin Vierling ink illustration. This is the second edition, printed at Monolith Press in 2021. The poster measures 18 x 24 inches, and is screen printed in two colors on Classic Crest 100 pound paper. Each print is signed and numbered by the artist.
Inspired by the complex patterns of birds in flight, the starburst of doves evokes both radiance and harmony. PAX. Peace under sovereignty, the attainment of equilibrium through concerted action. The ancient Romans bestowed the daughter of Jupiter with the name PAX, a springtime Goddess whose reign was renown for benevolent equanimity. Rejoice in the illumination of synergic avigation!
The image was originally created as an album cover for the German band, Fyrnask, for their Eldir Nótt release. The album art was nominated for the Best Art Vinyl 2013 prize in the United Kingdom, and selected amongst Redefine Magazine's best album covers of the year.
