Adama's Rare Painting of the First Cylon War

In the Battlestar Galactica saga, many new science-fiction icons were born. Perhaps the most elusive of these is the huge oil painting seen hanging in Admiral William Adama's quarters. Glimpsed in episodes going back to the beginning of the series, fans have long clamored for a closer look. But because the painting is a one-of-a-kind original oil, closer looks were limited to those lucky few with access to the set - that is, until now.

Through a special arrangement with Universal Studios, QMx has acquired the only digital image of the painting taken directly from the canvas, after the propmaster aged it, but before it hung on Adama's wall. This high-resolution archival scan documents every brushstroke, capturing the image exactly as it looked the day it was placed on the set.

Depicting the bloody landscape that was the First Cylon War, the painting has been faithfully reproduced in a plate-printed lithograph.
