The printing of this...well, I'm just blown away.

Also, I have a Pareidolia with this image. I see a grinning-horned-devil-skull-face when I look at this area. (lower right)

I see it! Happenstance for certain.

I like to think of the fragments of white "paper" as the remnants of a surrender flag.

Sorry to hear that. Can you see grinning-horned-devil-skull-faces? Evidently, Sandmandan and I can. :D My eyes kept focusing on it in the jpeg's posted. In the actual print...not so much (real glad of that.) :shrug: I've no idea why/how this happens...just does, sometimes.

I love looking at this print. Seriously.

+1 I love this print. Showed a family member yesterday and they were blown away by Horkey's skill and the amount of colors involved.

This one will surely be a classic :pint:

The Shrike by Sylvia Plath

When night comes black
Such royal dreams beckon this man
As lift him apart
From his earth-wife's side
To wing, sleep-feathered,
The singular air,
While she, envious bride,
Cannot follow after, but lies
With her blank brown eyes starved wide,
Twisting curses in the tangled sheet
With taloned fingers,
Shaking in her skull's cage
The stuffed shape of her flown mate
Escaped among moon-plumaged strangers;
So hungered, she must wait in rage
Until bird-racketing dawn
When her shrike-face
Leans to peck open those locked lids, to eat
Crowns, palace, all
That nightlong stole her male,
And with red beak
Spike and suck out
Last blood-drop of that truant heart.
