Golden Snake by Nivalis70 Golden Snake by Nivalis70
Collaboration with :iconriver-hrossa:
One of the animal guardians at Fortunate Islands, from Torquato Tasso's Jerusalem Delivered, book XV

[...]It raises - all bleak gold scales -
its crests and head, swells its neck with rage;
its eyes burn, the whole path unseen lies
under that belly; it blows venom and smoke
[...]


Published in the US anthology Emanations: Third Eye www.iaemanations.blogspot.it/

Eye to the Third Eye!The anthology Emanations: Third Eye, published by International Authors, is now available! Among many other things - fiction of several genres, poetry, essays, art - it includes Jerusalem Updated, new translations of selected passages from Torquato Tasso's 16th century long poem Gerusalemme Liberata, plus comments, and 8 illustrations by the Magic Trio, i.e. DArtist Nivalis70 (here), Selkis (here) and yours truly.

Suggester said, "I absolutely love the composition and colors in this work, but there is a hissing menace here that the artist captured nicely. I got chills down my spine!" Golden Snake by Nivalis70 ( Suggested by MissDudette and Featured by vowbreaker )

Veramente suggestivo! Belli i colori che mi sembrano acidi. E bellissimo per il riferimento letterario che ha!

Grazie infinite :hug:
Mi piace moltissimo intepretare sulla base di un riferimento narrato, anzi, non saprei farne a meno! un poema, una canzone, un fumetto... purchè ci sia una storia che mi appassioni :)
