"Divisions" (prophetic painting)

Next looks to be an unrelated Mendez painting, judging from the style. It shows the skyline of Midtown Manhattan as viewed from the rooftop of the iconic Deveaux Building, but it is divided up into five differently drawn and colored segments. The left most showing the smoking ruins of New York City under cloudy skies. The next the ruins of midtown overgrown with vegetation as it was in the year 2019 Helena visited. The middle image is that of the clear and undamaged New York skyline, with buildings undamaged by the bomb. Then comes a vista of the ruins of midtown, gutted skyscrapers and the distant glow of dawn on the horizon. Lastly, the literal shores of the Empire State, skyscrapers flooded by a risen sea, birds filling the air.

— from The Color Red, Part I


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.

"Divisions" 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 Institite hands.

Judging from the painting's unique style, it appears to be the work of the late Isaac Mendez.

The overt symbolism is hard to miss to those who know what they're looking at.
