I am deeply honored and thankful to, my strong surprise, lol, that I was selected for third place in this epic contest! Thank you so much to everyone!

(It's not quite as good as I was hoping for but I was in a rush and in general pleased with it. It at least conveys the basic concept in my mind's eye. :) )

This work comes from within the mouth of a vampire that feasts off, from the savage garden and lives within it, taking from the Anne Rice books and her character Lestat. The once human is both drained, food for the vampire but also losing her mortality as she has also been chosen to undergo the change and become one too. Her life, her humanity and body being slowly digested by the drinking vampire and by the hours that pass as she changes. Life is indeed a Savage Garden.

“In spite of all the refinements of civilization that conspired to make art--the dizzying perfection of the string quartet or the sprawling grandeur of Fragonard's canvases--beauty was savage. It was as dangerous and lawless as the earth had been eons before man had one single coherent thought in his head or wrote codes of conduct on tablets of clay. Beauty was a Savage Garden.”
― Anne Rice, The Vampire Lestat

“In this Savage Garden, these innocent ones belonged in the vampire’s arms.” – Lestat

 “But let me be a lover in the Savage Garden with you, and the light that went out of life would come back in a great burst of glory. Out of mortal flesh I would pass into eternity. I would be one of you.” - Daniel”

― Anne Rice, The Queen of the Damned

“Very few beings really seek knowledge in this world. Mortal or immortal, few really ask. On the contrary, they try to wring from the unknown the answers they have already shaped in their own minds -- justifications, confirmations, forms of consolation without which they can't go on. To really ask is to open the door to the whirlwind. The answer may annihilate the question and the questioner.”
― Anne Rice, The Vampire Lestat

The Beauty of the Savage Garden

The concept of the Savage Garden in the novels of Anne Rice Vampire Chronicles literature is one thought of in the mind of Lestat, a sometime philosopher and articulate hero. The phrase is first seen in The Vampire Lestat, as the perspective hero, is attempting to understand the darkness of the world in which he exists. It begins, first of all, with Lestat’s terror of The Witch’s Place, the location in the forests of his homeland where witches were executed for their crimes against God and man. Lestat experiences a crisis of emotive horror at the thought of these women, men, children, being tortured, murdered, in this exact spot, where he stands, and, it flings back to his terror, alone, in the snow, hounded by a pack of wolves, dying alone, or, perhaps, simply fearing dying alone.

His existentialism stems from what he is beginning to see of the people that surround him, the people that make the world in which he lives, the meaninglessness of their casual cruelty visited upon one another.

HERE'S YOUR MAGIC PLACESparkle out of the hat 

Little Pixel Heart  Eulogistic comment Little Pixel Heart 

The mouth of the vampire has in its interior the carnivorous plant * dionaea muscipula * ...;
The plant has caught a dam ...; the blood is perfectly achieved by dripping
Among remains of leaves .., in the upper part of the composition two tusks are well located, one in each corner; the garden represents an excellent personification ...; the gloomy colors are fantastic...; great concept!!!!!!!!
Brilliant creation!!!!!!!!Thank You (18) for sharing your Art between us!!!!!! Get Together
