The pursuit of knowledge of the nearest planet Mars has been underway since man first discovered the planet above us. The theory of water of Mars was first posited by Renaissance astronomers upon being able to view the polar ice caps for the first time. Mariner 9 and Viking Orbiter images, showed a network of branching valleys in Thaumasia called Warrego Valles. These networks are evidence that Mars may have once been warmer, wetter, and perhaps had precipitation in the form of rain or snow. At first glance they resemble river valleys on our Earth. This piece represents that important discovery of water on Mars by giving a small glimpse of the Warrego Valles brought to life on canvas.
