Mysterious Painting ACNH Real vs Fake

The good news! There’s no fake version of the Mysterious Painting in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, as this artwork is always real and genuine. So, you can purchase the Mysterious Painting safely without any worry of getting ripped off.

The Mysterious Painting is based on the ‘Isle of the Death’ painting by Arnold Becklin. The painting shows a small boat that carries a corpse glides quietly over a still sea to a grave island that is surrounded by cliffs.

We can feel the atmosphere of Arnold Becklin’s art is chilling, but also somehow calm. Implicitly, Arnold Becklin worked to capture not what he could see, however some of humanity’s inner contemplations.

The Story Behind the Mysterious Painting

According to some sources, the plot of the painting Isle of the Death is based on the ancient myth that developed in society that the souls of heroes and favorites of the gods find their last refuge on a desert island. According to mythology, the island where the dead are swept away by water, is depicted by the desert in the underground river Acheron that passes through it.

Many art historians wonder which island inspired Arnold Becklin to create this wonderful painting. Many speculated that the sheer cliffs of the Isle of the Death are the landscapes of the volcanic Pontine islands and Faraglioni reefs off the coast of Capri that Arnold Becklin could see on his trip to Naples.

If we look further, there is the tomb of the island of San Michele near Venice, where the bodies of the deceased are transported in gondolas and where the same dark, “mourning cypresses” rest in the rising sky, as depicted in Becklin’s painting.

The trees that symbolize eternal life are traditionally planted in Italy in monasteries, in cemeteries and near churches.

As art connoisseurs, we don’t need to know any further and deeper about what island inspired Beklin. Basically, he managed to convey the main point that the island with crypts carved into the rocks and a small marina does not belong to the mundane life.

In his painting, Arnold Becklin wants to convey that the island is in a different and inaccessible living space. A ship with an aircraft carrier, wearing a shroud and the figure of a sarcophagus does not break with the silence of this silent world, melancholy and breathless of life, but beautiful in its own way.
