Fire is one of the four classical elements in ancient Greek philisophy and science. It was commonly associated with the qualities of energy, assertiveness, and passion. In one Greek myth, Prometheus stole fire from the gods to protect the otherwise helpless humans, but was punished for this charity. The ancient Greeks distinguished the destructive and consumptive (aidelon) fire, associated with Hades, from the creative fire, associated with Hephaestus, the god of metalworking and smithing. Goddess Hecate was called Pyrophoros (Fire-bearing), Pyripnon (Fire-breather), Daidoukhos (Torch-bearer) and Phosphoros (Light-bearer).
Fire and the other Greek classical elements were incorporated into the Golden Dawn system. Philosophus (4=7) is the elemental grade attributed to fire; this grade is also attributed to the Qabalistic Sephirah Netzach and the planet Venus. The elemental weapon of fire is the Wand. Each of the elements has several associated spiritual beings. The archangel of fire is Michael, the angel is Aral, the ruler is Seraph, the king is Djin, and the fire elements (following Paracelsus) are called salamanders. Fire is considered to be active; it is represented by the symbol for Leo and it is referred to the lower right point of the pentacle in the Supreme Invoking Ritual of the Pentacle. Many of these associations have since spread throughout the occult community.

What we commonly call fire. It is not really fire, for fire is an excess of heat and a sort of ebullition; but in reality, of what we call air, the part surrounding the earth is moist and warm, because it contains both vapour and a dry exhalation from the earth.

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-12-19
:iconcountercanterphotos:
This captures perfectly both the spirit of fire and the spirit of the horse. The movement in it is fantastic, in particular the main, tail and feather. I love the depth in the eyes and the brand on the shoulder, and the light in the whole picture, especially the light flowing off the mane, tail and feather. The sparks flying are fantastic, and I love the charred background. This entire picture has been pulled off so effectively. I can't see any obvious conformation flaws with the horse, and it is very beautiful. The fire left in its wake is hugely effective and I love the realism of it all.

Very nicely done.

WOW! I am very blown away at the amazing quality and beauty of this awesome piece. The background, the realism of the flames, the way you did the horse, and everything else takes my breath away. The complexity of this piece is simply stunning. It was a very well-deserved Daily Deviation, and I can most definetly see why.
Now, I love the way it looks, but I think that maybe the horse's hair looks a bit strange with the realism of the rest of the painting, it looks somewhat like it was, in a way, painted into a drawing that was already made. Other than that, I think it's an amazing picture. Great job, and congratulations on the Daily Deviation.

I would like to use the image in a Magic Set Editor custom project. It is really just a pet project, no profit, purely for fun. If you'd like to know more, please feel free to ask for the details. If you'd prefer if I didn't, just say. Thank you.
