Book illusration for a fairy tale.  Pen and ink, 30 x 40 cm

Beside the sea, Gilgamesh meets Siduri, THE DRAGON OF THE SILVER LAKE,  who reminds him of the meaningfulness of being human. "Gilgamesh, where are you hurrying to?" the dragon asks.

"You will never find that life for which you are looking. When the gods created man they allotted to him death, but life they retained in their own keeping. As for you, Gilgamesh, fill your belly with good things; day and night, night and day, dance and be merry, feast and rejoice. Let your clothes be fresh, bathe yourself in water, cherish the little child that holds your hand, and make the one you LOVE,   happy in your embrace; for this too is the lot of man."

This is utterly too gorgeous to not stop in my tracks, stare, and , after regaining my senses, pound out a comment sufficient enough to convey my rapt captivation of this blindingly beautiful bounty of riches! Yes, I laid it on a little thick, but this is indeed a stunning piece. Good luck and keep sharing your gift with us!

Oh my goodness. This looks like one of those breathtaking paintings that you find in the museum of art. What type of pen did you use, and is that all you used? This is truly stunning.

It is a truely gorgeous masterpiece in itself. However, why set the legend of Gilgamesh in a medieval setting instead of a Sumerian one? His outfit looks Scottish and he is holding a thistle. I’d like to see him in his true mythological niche.

:-) ALEXANDRA DVINITNINOVA replies: "This is the Scottish version of Gilgamesh, and that is the Loch Ness Dragon, "
