Hand painted reproductions of this painting on fresco is becoming popular for a reason. Everybody wants a piece of cake of the original work by Paolo Uccelo. Not fakes, but mere reproductions, hand-made, and in oil. It is a public collection, and I hope to add it to mine. The historic painting is one of the oldest among those in Florence, and you may not be able to find it in the most delectable condition – owing to various factors such as weathering and weakening of construction at Green Cloister at Santa Maria Novella in Florence. The fantastic collection of works by Uccelo continues to thrill me – not just because of historic value, but the inherent story about the painter’s background, and how they were brought up in Florence after the Dark Age was beginning to take its toll. A vivid hallmark of their beliefs is God’s man-like form, and man-like actions, which are resemble the urge to create something, or live in the presence of a new situation. Uccelo welcomes it, and takes the pain of producing it on a wall with the crudest forms of colors. Today, the reproduction pieces are mainly being delivered through oil-on-panel, oil-on-wood, oil-on-canvas and digital formats. You can own this masterpiece in two halves or in a single piece, as the left half is about the creation of animals, and the right, about that of Adam. It is also worthy to note the fierce cry of the animal upon coming into existence, and the distinctly different instinct of man, who needs the help of God to stand on his feet. Theological value of this work is quite remarkable, and it stands out in its primitiveness. Besides, there are many additional features in the original, which make this work one of the most charismatic and equitable value with the cave paintings Machu Picchu.
