"1 of 8" (prophetic painting)

The first painting, conveniently marked 1/8 depicts an aerial view of a street where a dark-haired man in a long black coat lays face down on the pavement in an enormous pool of blood. The front of an automobile is just visible on the left hand corner of the painting and the ground around the blood gives the impression of being shiny with moisture, maybe from recently fallen rain.

Significance

One of fourteen pieces of prophetic artwork hidden under the orchestra pit at the Mariinsky Theatre and safeguarded by Ivan Spektor and his wife, Katarina, with help from Yustina Kozlow.

"1/8" was recovered from St. Petersburg by Benjamin Ryans and Catherine Chesterfield, two members of a team organized by Noah Bennet that also included Abigail Beauchamp, Lashirah Lee and René so that it did not fall into _institute hands.

This piece was designed by the late Isaac Mendez.
