The V. legion founded by Caesar is an extremely important and infamous legion in the history of Rome. Fast, unexpected and cruel.
In this work of Tamás Náray a black background with infinite depth meets the curious eye of the viewer, a background that is actually the lifeless scene left behind after fatal battles. The frame is divided into two distinct surfaces: the Lower German and Upper German regions. The outposts, strongly highlighting the Roman defense lines and moats, are illustrated by red surfaces with gradual shrinking as foreshadowment of the approaching doom. In the colors used by the Hungarian artist a reference to current German colors can also be discovered.
