Unfortunately this was a circumstance when I found I was just trying too hard to come up with something interesting rather than something that flows out naturally, so I've just left it to speak for itself.

I spent really long time just looking at this. Can't get tired... it's amazing. I kind of get confused, in a good way, of the contrast of life and death here. the corpse is evidently a corpse but it's as if it still had an expression, and the flying moths make it seem as if there was something they don't fear, but humans do. I don't know... I am really mindblown at this. I never thought I'd stare this long at the image of a corpse.

I didn't notice the woman in the back at first. Everything in the foreground is so detailed and captivating that when I saw her it was kind of surprising. Maybe that's just me. Anyway, fantastic painting.

So it's not just me. It seems hidden. Like the leaf patterns and foreground objects are meant to draw us away.

It had been hard, Sir. Walking was to be the first man to find the source of the Nile. After traveling two weeks they had lost all sight of the river, and panic started taking over. The native tribesmen, his guides, left under the cover of darkness. Snake bites, deadly bees, and sickness whittled the group down to the last two.  Sir. Walking and his man servant Peter Potts had now run out of food. Potts offered his own flesh, Sir. Walking starved and delirious, stuffed the delicious meat into his mouth, every bite bringing him closer to death, as the now black blood and screams of the late Peter Potts were soaked up by the jungle sand. Sir. Walking's last thought was so strong and so vivid that even when his body was well on the path of becoming dust it sat and waited. His last though was a call, a beacon to those with similar thoughts. As wind blew through the trees and the stranger drawn to the bones paused to listened, "I want more, more, bring me more flesh." These worlds were followed by the rattle of bones and that one thought tugging together enough of a body to be made flesh to seek flesh, to consume flesh.  

The end :bow:
