My favorite part other than your use of color is probably the head... it reminds me of so many things, but it's utterly unique at the same time.

Great work.

Oh I just love it ... and your other recent deviations too! I so enjoy your style ... sadly have not had as much time as I would like to comment and be on DA. Yes, seems sadly most of our lives are spent working these days.

Great to hear from you my friend and hope you are well! :wave:
and again... awesome job! Wowzer!!!

I love the sense of protection the central figure offers: it chases the sharks away and it cradles the smaller figure :aww:
Like I said before, I like everything about this!

This is a beautiful work of art! I love the concept and your symbolism... I specially love the duality in the face... something used a lot in my country...

:hug: Thanks Lily! I love using dual symbolism, and the split face is a recurring theme in alot of stuff I do :clone:

Yes, I`ve noticed... I guess it means something really deep... but I have no idea what! It means a lot to the Aztecs, Mayans, Greeks, Chinese, Japanese and ancient civilizations. The Duality of the cosmos, mind, sun-moon, jing-jang (sp)... etc...

Interesting aspect of your lovely art... :nod:
