Ok, I haven't been able to devote much time to this community lately... or any lj at all for that matter... but I'm back, so I thought I'd post a piece of art that I enjoy. |
I AM NOT CLAIMING I MADE THIS, I JUST REALLY LIKE IT SO DON'T THROW A HISSY FIT THAT THIS ISN'T MY WORK. JUST BECAUSE I'M NOT AN ARTIST MYSELF, DOESN'T MEAN I CAN'T APPRECIATE IT.
That being said... here it is.
I really like this one, but all I can tell you about it is that it's painted by Franz von Stuck... if you don't know what a sphinx is... get a dictionary. Yeh, I really like the use of red and shadow. Plus the piece itself seems to evoke some stirring emotions... is the kiss of the sphinx a reward, or a death sentence? Notice how her claws are wrapped around his waist... yeh I REALLY like this one.
