Aslan, from the chronicles of Narnia.
I have always loved this character, his might to be so kind but firm.
Aslan is (c) by C.S. Lewis.

"The question is," said Edmund, "whether it doesn't make things worse, looking at a Narnian [painting] when you can't get there."
"Even looking is better than nothing," said Lucy. "And [it] is such a very Narnian [painting]."
The quote sounds better in the original context, but it's perfect for this image. I always get a tingle down my spine if you just whisper Aslan's name. I got the same tingle looking at this painting.

Wrong will be right, when Aslan comes in sight,
At the sound of his roar, sorrows will be no more,
When he bares his teeth, winter meets its death,
And when he shakes his mane, we shall have spring again.

Oh, I love the books and the BBC series - I fell in love with Aslan as a child, and I still am in love with him. Beautiful!

first of all, i'd love to get a print of that picture, it is amazing.it reminds me of God's love for all of us. Power of His Mane is just the right title, it says it all!
there is something about just reading the books and then imagiening Aslan. it makes me feel so peaceful.its a kind of peace that only "Aslan" can give.thank you for painting this picture so that more may feel His peace.

I'm so glad to find a picture of Aslan, which shows more than a lion!

This is really beautiful, I love it. It's funny, I just started re reading the Narnia series, and now I found this. Not only that, but there's going to be a movie! Hopefully Aslan in the movie will be as good as yours 2

I have to agree that this piece of art is great! I absolutly love the Chronicles of Narnia series (especially the movies)and this piecture is really well done. It has a certain "feeling" about it if you know what I mean.
