The ruthless Mongol ruler and warrior Genghis Khan (c. 1162-1227) unified his people and created the world’s largest empire, which at its speak reached as far west as Hungary and as far east as Korea and covered much of China and Russia. A New York City artist has paid homage to Genghis with this piece of mixed media street art on Ludlow St. on the Lower East Side. The work uses a wood plaque, paint and ink, with a splotch of white paint serving as backdrop for the ink illustration of the illustrious Khan.
