My depiction of the Feast of Belshazzar. Years ago a student of mine did a mixed media, mostly pastel, version of Rembrandt’s famous painting. I always had fond memories of her work. She was very talented.
Here I have focused on the actual writing showing it carved into the wall. I followed Rembrandt’s scheme of left to right and down in Hebrew lettering. When complete, the words read: Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin (weighed in the balances and found wanting—Aramaic).
It is a digital work and I used the same hand as Rembrandt—not to plagarise but it just seemed fitting in respect to the great master.
