For the millennium in the year 2000, I created an illustration relating the history of man from the birth of Jesus Christ until today (Opus 1).

Ten years later I got gripped by passion again to finish this large historical fresco.
I paint the suite, or rather the early history of the earth and mankind, from the Big Bang to the beginning of the Christian era (Opus 2).

Both images are released as gigantic jigsaw puzzles (4000 or 8000 pieces) by the publishing house "Heye Verlag" in Munich, Germany.

About one year of continuous work was necessary for each one. Several hundred sketches and watercolors that I am pleased to share with you.
