He is primarily known for his finely detailed designs of cultural and historical mural study-decorations for schools that included landscapes, cityscapes, medieval cities, the Acropolis (Greece), various architectural renderings, memorial and national monuments, interior scenes, historical and cultural human genre/civil activities, as well as educational/industrial cut-away diagrams/wall-charts , geographical scenes, etc. This copy came from a school in Helsinki, Finland.
