The artwork of Maria Lombide Ezpeleta with notes.


The control of light and shading in this picture is to my mind exquisite. This, in my humble opinion, is the closest Maria gets to so-called ‘High Art’. The physical aspect of the dragons with symmetrically curved bodies; the entwined tails – a hallmark of Maria’s work – complement the entire composition. The claw holding a Silmaril-like gem presented at off-side to the foreground Dragon produces the implicit power of her/its magic. The hues of reddish make this an outstanding visual work, one that has simplicity yet deep, deep magic. A truly primal look into our Cosmos of myth.
