Between a rock and a hard place

This fantastic mural is by French artist and muralist SCKARO, aka Oscar Maslard. Oscar combines hyper-realistic elements with experimental and dynamic forms in his murals, often resulting in an estranged and almost dream-like image. In his work for Lelystad, you can clearly see his characteristic style. 
During his research on Lelystad, he discovered that scientists found a 10,000-year-old civilization at the bottom of the North Sea, where they had found many artifacts such as utensils and spearheads. The work SCKARO has created symbolizes the transfer of this ancient civilization to modern society. The background is more primitive, referring to the past, while the hand in the foreground is hyper-realistic and detailed, which refers to more modern society. You see this realistic hand emerging from the depths and sea rocks; reaching for the flint and with that the start of society as it is. The work can be found in 't Lelycentre in Lelystad.
