This picture is the first that the artist painted for the Goddesses of Nibiru series and those familiar with his work can see that it is a transition from the series Tomoe Gozen to Goddesses, which makes it a singular piece. The treatment of the skin is of superb realism. The pearly skin achieved with layers of oil paint, give it a special gleam and realism. The background is very fluid and contributes a fresh image to the picture in spite of its realism. Romulo points our attention in the direction that he wants, the face reveals eyes watching us mysteriously from behind the mask.
This picture is an unquestionably good work in terms of both the quality of painting and the period that it belongs to and symbolizes, as the first picture in the Goddesses series.
In the series Goddesses of Nibiru, reflects the game of the myth and reality. The delicacy and strength represented by the female figure. Captures beautiful, enigmatic and sometimes veiled factions, as if it were a dream or illusion. The costumes and ornaments he decorate them with are timeless, objects that can remember us ancient civilizations, such as feathers, dressings with metal pieces.
Royo brings its own aesthetic, centered on the gods who inhabit this planet called Nibiru, basing on Mesopotamian and Babylonian texts. According to these texts it is a planet in our solar system that orbits our star every 3600 years. Nibiru is the home of the gods, of the Anunnaki, or what is the same, winged beings.
