Art 111/353 Alexander

The Tower of Babel; 1563 By; Peter Bruegel Oil on Canvas This painting depicts the construction of the Tower of Babel. Christians at that time saw it as a symbol of hubris and persecution due to the architecture featuring Roman engineering. But the significance of the painting is the way the tower is built. It is not level and not sturdy. It is an ascending spiral. The artist uses light pastel colors and intentional placement of details.
