After reading part 5 and 6 of the book Anthem by Ayn Rand, I decided draw the so-called "Master Piece" that Equality 7-2521 built in his fort. This object is described as "a box of glass, devised to give forth the power of the sky of greater strength than we had ever achieved before. And when we but our wires to this box, when we close the current -- the wire glowed! It came to life, it turned red, and a circle of light lay on the stone before us." is a lamp for us now a days. What I like to think of it as is that this description is the inside that we do not see from lights. The small flicks in yellow represent the light the box is projecting. The reason I only drew the character's hand is because in another part of the story in which the author describes the darkness around this glass box of light after blowing out the candles, he tells us how only Equality 7-2521's hands were being illuminated. Lastly, the reason why I chose to draw this specific object is because this is the first thing that Equality 7-2521 is risking to show the other men his accomplishments knowing he can get into a lot of trouble by being independent.
