A truly divine artwork by Danish Bjørn Wiinblad displaying the legendary King Solomon riding on an elephant with his servants.
According to the Bible King Solomon was a wealthy and wise king of Israel and a son of David (ancestor of Jesus). He is also famous for constructing of the First Temple in Jerusalem about 3000 years ago.
I have seen another version of this poster. The most common one is black/white but this one has different shades of orange - almost as if was a sunset. In my opinion this "orange" version is by far the most beautiful.
The craft of Wiinblad is often colorful, lush and full of humor. He was inspired by the sumptuous oriental style far from the Nordic stylish line. This artwork is differently true to his special line.
The views on his works are to this day very divided, but interest in his finer things are unrelenting - especially abroad (particularly the U.S., Japan, Germany and Norway). Bjørn Wiinblad's contemporaries were not exactly inclined to acknowledge his way to work, so his position as an artist has been a bit special.
Globally, Bjørn Wiinblad is one of the very best selling Danish artists. He is represented at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Museum of Modern Art in New York - just to mention a few.
