VINDOBONA ALTARPIECE III - SNAKES AND LADDERS

A high resolution re-take of my drawing - the original has recently been sold.
Previous post is here fav.me/dtl2aq - but this is a better picture, taken with a Hasselblad.

Update May 2015: 
For some time now I've been asked to write a little something about this work by the collector who owns it. I finally did take the time and wound up writing something just short of my life story. I composed it on Google documents and downloaded it as pdf, which I then uploaded to Issuu. This is embedded on my website, together with download links for the document (as pdf and ODT files):

thank you for the comment - "Lucky Buyer" - this work was one of my all-time signature pieces, likely the best drawing of mine so far, and I really didn't want to part with it; fortunately, it didn't go to a complete stranger, but to an appreciative collector of Fantastic Art, and I am fortunate that in this collection I am in the company of such greats as Ernst Fuchs and Victor Safonkin.
