In European mythology Vouivre is the queen of snakes. On her forehead she bears lambent gemstone - the bright-red ruby. She can be seen flying in the skies at summer nights. When she bathes she leaves the stone on the shore and the one who is cunning enough to steal the gem will become fabulously wealthy as he will get the part of hidden treasures that are protected by the snake.

Work in progress

Absolutely love this. Reminds me of a scene out of an Amelia Atwater-Rhodes book, though the wings are different from Rhodes characters. Very beautiful.
