agreed! may the gods look kindly upon all artists this year also!

this is truly brilliant. my girlfriend thought this pic was cool too.

do you base your works on ancient Indian tales, like the Mahabharata, perchance?

this reminds me of something I saw long ago, a photo of an ancient tapestry.

Namaste!

  I didn't have any particular myth in mind, but it's a popular theme in eastern mythology and could probably be related to many legends.
As far as Mahabharata goes, I dare not touch it yet. Hopefully in the future, though it's such an immense and complicated subject...
Need some serious divine inspiration for that. A very rare thing in this funky age of Kali...
