 The Fish Eye Horse   ©  Oil and oil pastel on fine paper  36 cm high x 47.5 cm wide  The fish eye is both a hieroglyph and the Greek Ichthus, echoed in the eye of the watching harpy-crow which is looming ominously in the raining flame tree on the mount.  On the horizon, the curvature of the earth is lit by an atomic sunset.
