Astral Melody

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Awakened from forsaken ruins, still possessing the divine ring of kingship, she is now listening to the stars. By their beckoning it will be her time to descend with the beast, and reveal and aid the true King for arrival of the upcoming Golden Age. It's not from a fantasy tale, it's merely a thought. Her dress and equipments are inspired by Sumerian, Babylonian and Assyrian subjects. The jewelry is also inspired by those from royal tombs of Ur, and I'm now working on a portrait to depict such ornaments more clearly. The chimera has the solar icon on its fur (inspired by artifacts like these golden vases found in northern Iran), and the symbol of the goddess Ishtar is on a broken stone. Leo constellation can be seen on the right... Done in watercolors and gouaches.
