Emperor of Leshur Vrei

A complex intertwining of composition…well look at it?! The very deep mythic, almost supernormal symbolism of the Emperor(three faced being), his hermaphrodites and techno-magical buildings. A seeming out of place couple on a end of a bridge-type structure present almost a paradox to the opposite side of the work. Clearly this is a very detailed channeling of a different world, albeit one internally consistent.


Dragon Flying

This synergy of Maria’s Dobermans and dragons of myth is perhaps my favourite among many of her works. The perspective with the front claw, its relationship with the turned head and the synonymous echo in the tongue invite the viewer into the picture. The magical blurring at the top of the picture, embracing the wings, give both energy and motion. Notice also a typical maria lombide ezpeleta artistic signature-device of the spiraling ears of the dragon and the very long twisting tail, also a feature of her work.
