This is the Signed original Watercolour painting by Henry Coller.

The fall of the Babylonian Empire came suddenly when the Medes and the Persians overran the city of Babylon in a night attack in 539 B.C.. Prior to this event, the Babylonian Empire had already fallen on evil days. When Nebuchadnezzar died in 562BC, he was succeeded by his son Amel-Marduk who was assassinated only two years later.

In 560BC Neriglissar took the throne. When he died in 556 B.C, after only four years of reign, he was succeeded by his son who was assassinated shortly after he came to the throne. Nabonidus then assumed power appointing his son Belshazzar as co-ruler.

It was this Belshazzar who held the ungodly feast of Daniel 5 and perished at the hands of the Medes and Persians.

The original watercolour painting from 1948 for an illustrated edition of the Bible. Signed by the artist lower right.
