'Nightmare of the Soul'
This is a very dark and intense painting, but
it is also a very interesting one. There seems to be a large image of a
young man (a warrior) in the upper left corner. His face is intersected
with what looks to me to be a sword, albeit, an invisible sword, as you
can see his features through the 'sword'.
There are lots of other images and faces in this painting, but the most
notable is the leathery texture and the collection of grimacing teeth throughout.
these teeth, I nearly named this one simply 'Carnage', but in the end decided
against it and went with 'Nightmare of the Soul', as 'Carnage' seemed
Because I think this speaks to the confusion and darkness and pain we
all wander through, and all the imagined battles we think we must fight
(not unlike Don Quixote) until we find our way back to our source, where
we see clearly that nothing is separate from us, nothing is alien to us,
and all is working in our behalf, as it must (though it may not seem
that way right now). How could it be otherwise?
Anyhow, I hope you enjoy Nightmare of the Soul. To see some really
amazing (and somewhat gruesome) teeth, click below. They are really amazing.
