My take on a classic subject. (How do you spell Urich?)


Orig working size 3300x2550 pxls at 500 ppi. 4 layers.

Ode to the classics. Terrific.

A superb recall, both artistically and phylosophically. An emotionally rich jump by time machine, back to the XVII century I'd say.

"Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio; a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy; he hath borne me on his back a thousand times; and now, how abhorred in my imagination it is! My gorge rises at it. Here hung those lips that I have kissed I know not how oft. Where be your gibes now? Your gambols? Your songs? Your flashes of merriment, that were wont to set the table on a roar?" (Hamlet, V.i)

Beautiful painting. You're very clever.
