From the headlines of today comes the ultimate adventure novel of prehistoric discovery. Two scientists unwittingly introduce a small tribe of prehistoric people living in isolation for a million years to the ultimate modern predator: humanity. This is their adventure, combining a clash of cultures, religious ardor with the oldest stories of all: the meaning of friendship and true love.
The two scientists, Sarah and Richard discover the existence of a living human ancestor, Homo floresiensis on an isolated tropical island. These small hobbit-like creatures are not the hobbits of JRR Tolkien's stories but a small tribe of prehistoric people living in seeming isolation for nearly a half million years on the Indonesian island of Irmã Flores. In their unrelenting quest for knowledge, Sarah and Richard unintentionally expose these innocents to the onslaught of the modern world including corporate raiders, Indonesian pirates and religious zealots. Moreover, while struggling with the magnitude of their find, Sarah and Richard are forced to reconcile their own, very different personalities. In the process of discovery and befriending these ancient people, Sarah and Richard rediscover their own humanity and the opportunity to find true love.
The Millennium Painting Site features many of the paintings of Erik John Bertel. You can choose to view the standard galleries or for the adventuresome tour the Virtual Art Gallery. The three virtual art galleries feature the paintings of Erik John Bertel in a surreal VRML world. All of the galleries feature the modern artwork of Erik John Bertel and his unique, bold vision. The VRML galleries have been updated with new technology that is viewable in most updated browsers. New additions to the site will include original multimedia presentations designed specifically for the Internet. These will be viewable in Web and Internet galleries to be added later.

" I hope that all who visit this site enjoy the experience of the Millennium Painting. We all travel through time but it's so much a part of who we are that we reduce it to the mundane. It's only when the calendar points to significant annual events do we take the time to measure ourselves, our cultures, our very passage through time. Without argument, the year 2001 is an arbitrary cultural event but it is as good time as any to be both introspective and to be celebratory."
this site I have tried hard to capture the power and strength of the
Internet while remaining true to my original art. I hope you find this
site to be a meaningful experience as I try to explore what the Internet
can mean to both artists and to those patrons interested in the visual
arts. Remember the Millennium Painting site is a work in progress that
will hold many surprises for all of us in the months ahead. When we
turn the Art Cam on this site during the month of November, 2000 it
will change forever from being a simple painting gallery to a performance
event. Thank you again for your precious time and interest. And most
of all, I wish you a happy and healthy new millennium".
