Teumesios by Culpeo-Fox Teumesios by Culpeo-Fox
alopekos teumesios. the giant beast, the teumessian vixen who was destined never to be caught.

laelaps, the dog who never failed to catch what he was hunting.

it was a hunt that was doomed to be everlasting - until zeus turned both into stone to put an end to that.




A3, done with coffee, water colours, charcoal and coloured pencils.
still have to reply many notes - sorry, i will do so soon.

i realise this is probably very old, so i hope you might see this comment.
I live in England, And I am a hunt saboteur- we stop hunts from killing the foxes, amongst other animals I suppose.
But our main focus is on foxes...
Would you be interested in doing a few more hunt related themes, I've painted a few in my time and it's a satisfying contrast. The hunted, the prey, the inbetween.

My favorite myth of er, mythology. The whirl-pool twisty thingy of swirls (what's it called again?) is the first thing I look at after Teumessian and Laelaps, and, of course, I took my pointy finger and followeed the swirl like the random gal I am. It was too tempting...

Reminds me very much of Watership Down and the 'prince with a thousand enemies'
: ] but in a good way of course
that and this one bit from Bambi: a life in the woods (original novel the disney movie was based on, very dark, very sad, but good read : ]) in which there is this fox being chased by a huntsman's hound and then this dialogue goes on about how the fox and hound are brothers and how the hound is a traitor...except well...the fox ends up in the hounds jaws ^^'''
But yeah good stuff : D

This is beautiful- it reminds me of a recurring dream I keep having about a fox and a dog. Only they have a relationship of tolerance- i wouldn't say they like one another, but they coexist.

This looks exactly like they do in my dreams. Thank you for this.

This is incredible. That's possibly my favourite Greek myth, and the stunningness of it (Is that a word?) is just amazing. I love the middle bit, the way it's almost expanding out to envelope them into the stars. And the border. Wow. At first glance I thought it was a sort of medieval tapestry, and in some way that makes the myth come to life more, if you get my meaning lol.
Your work is really inspiring. I love it :)

Is that story from actual Roman mythology? I hadn't heard it before, if it is.

I like the colors - they flow (literally!) very well :)
