This piece was influenced by a little woodcut illustration in "The book of English Magic" by Phillip Carr-Gomm, it was part of the chapter about Alchemy and depicted the marriage of the White Queen (Mercury) and the Red King (Sulphur).
I loved this book, all this stories about magicians, druids and alchemists were extremely inspiring. In addition I listended to Dan Brown audiobooks, I think this together made my little fantasy-braincells working double shiftsXD

No problem. It's a beautiful piece. Sort of reminds me of medieval tapestries.

This has the feel of an old medieval painting, especially the lion. I love this. :love:

Nice to see you posting again.

It was my intention to give the lion a medieval look, I'm happy it worked out^^
