dreams these worlds. Go visit them.

Ivory tower side view.

A collaboration with `frail.
His drawing, and my color.

I hope that you will find this place as enchanting as I do.

*** This ivory tower is not actually the one from Fantasia; it is a beacon in another world. There are other towers there, hopefully you'll see more of them soon.
The idea of the ivory tower predates Neverending story by many eons, going back to the earliest reference in the Song of Solomon (7:4, to be precise). In the world you see here, the ivory tower represents sanctuary and hope.***

That beautiful Tower and the light of hopes.
I also have my tower and my temple of ivory
radiating eternal light in the kosmos.
My congratulations of heart to the creators

reminds me of Mona Lisa.. somehow.. I don`t know.. maybe the difference between heights of the wall and mountains at the background makes me feel so.. Very nice..

I know it's not the Fantasia "Ivory Tower", but I've faved it for our club because there's an Ayreon song about The NeverEnding Story and I thought my club members would like to see it. :-)

I love TNS! *huggle* The book was so haunting, and the movie was just so happy, I love them both ^^ Although I get kinda confused on whether to say Fantasia or Fantastica... Anyway, great picture, and congratulations!

Beautiful work. I like how your picture transends all the different ideas of the Ivory Tower so anyone can relate to it. I immediatly thought of The Neverending Story, but that's because I love that book so. Your coloring job is amazing ^_^
