Understated Inspirational Art

Look closely.

The Dragon's Den by James Campbell.


  1. At first I just thought I was imagining what I saw. I had to cheat, look the painting up, and get it verified. Glad to know I'm not completely hallucinatory.

    But I am mildly hallucinatory, apparently. I also see, off to the left, a skinny ent with a bellyache and, just above the ent's shoulders, a smaller ent just sitting down and being lazy. Probably from having had to spend time with those two knuckleheaded halflings from the Shire while the grown-ups were at entmoot.

    Clearly, it's time for me to go back to sleep.

  2. Since it's an actual cave, I'm sure it's just coincidence, but it almost looks like the dragon itself, with its neck curled around, and St George standing, apparently unaware, on its resting head.
