Tower of Babel with Bees

This is a 9x4ish watercolor of the tower of babel. The biblical tower of babel may have been based on the ziggarat of Marduk. The ziggarat of Marduk had seven multicolored levels-each one corresponded to a different planet. In this image the bees represent souls which are ascending. Take a peek at in my ebay store.
