Description

When humans left the planet for the last time, they took their gods that remained with them. Only a few gods, more stubborn or more dutiful than their brethren, stayed behind on the fallow earth.

Even in the absence of a dominant sentient species, the amount of godstuff produced by even a battered planet was far in excess of that required by these weary survivors. New proto-gods began to form, spawned from the dreams of grasses and the fears of rats. Small and colorless, their shapes fluid, these homunculi were made and unmade based on weather and imperceptible shifts in the magnetic field.

Confused as to their own purpose (if any) these homunculi sometimes fell into old patterns and sometimes, where the channels had been worn flat, branched out and formed new ones.

8 x 16 mixed media--another digital image worked over in paint on board--and as for the subjet, your guess is as good as mine. I think I finally figured out what those little white mannequins are, though...

Anyway, original for sale, prints available, visit Red Wombat Studio to order: [link]
