and satisfying. It is the kind of painting that everybody can relate to, as it seems to have some underlying idea of equality. The artist's choice of painting this painting on such a large scale is also very significant to the painting as it helps us in understanding the importance of these people who are depicted on a life-size scale. In conclusion, the artist is successful in lending an extremely realistic effect to his painting.
