In the early Twentieth Century an artist named Maxfield Parrish was famed for his romantically surreal paintings, most of which included diaphanously clad, dreamy young women. Antar Dayal offers his tribute to Parrish aesthetics in combination with his own appreciation of things lunar. Certain things only occur in dreams after all.
There is a mysterious attraction we animals have towrds the presence of strength held in reserve. The mighty lion, long known as the king of the animal world, is the greatest symbol of such strength. As for the flowers in his hair, this one is either a hippie or trying to fool someone into thinking he is a pussy cat.
The greatest monument to the American spirit and a living symbol of freedom to millions around the World. The Statue of Liberty was a gift from the people of France in 1886, originally intended for 1876 as a tribute to the first American centennial. 
Even those who have earned their wings sometimes get lost and need help finding their way home. Sometimes it is simply a matter of finding a ride. This lovely angel serves as a reminder that none of us, no matter what our destiny may be, are perfect in our sense of direction as we weave our way along the winding roads of life.
The 1935 Lockheed Electra 10E had a maximum speed of 202mph and a cruising speed of 90 mph. Amelia earhart flew a specially modified version for her ill fated flight around the World. Only 15 of these planes were ever built and only 2 remain in existence today.
Poking a bit of fun at all of the illustrations through time that attempted to depict the future "achievements" of human kind: Artist Antar Dayal draws upon the classic logic of projecting the known into the unknown. After all if you were thinking from a perspective of 1950 what would make more sense than an Airstream trailer as the first moon Base. As for the barbegue: We won't tell him a little oxygen may be needed!
