i really love the coloring style of this. the red figure bowing all alone is very disturbing…i am fascinated by the hoofed bird, of course, after our exchanges about the shamanic drumming/ drumming of hooves and the flights the sound would take the mind/spirit to. i also find the feathered mask intriguing,
Thanks! You´re right: I had my mind in quarantine while doing this, but now that you mention these elements I can clearly see that they play in, and that the image is a bit of a paraphrase of Fuseli´s Nightmare too!
