Krampus – Artist unknown

How many times have you been left a piece of coal? Probably never, unless your family think that they are hilarious in trying to make you think you've been naughty and Santa has left you nothing but a sooty handful. While this is a bit of a forgotten empty threat these days, there is actually... Continue Reading →

Futakuchi Onna – Yuko Shimzu

Bad hair days are one of the banes of my life. Cursed with not quite curly not quite straight hair I live in a constant struggle of trying to either tame it in to a state of straightness, or avoid looking like I have been dragged through a hedge backwards. While this may be my... Continue Reading →

Chinese Unicorn – Artist Unknown

Occasionally I will come across something that completely baffles me. It's not often as I really like to profess my utter geekdom in all things mythical, but this one has me stumped. I've done a fair bit of research, but Chinese myth is fraught with overlapping images and/or lots of things which can all be... Continue Reading →

Pegasus and Muse – Ernst Fuchs

Today’s post, I unapologetically release the full force of my Greek myth geekdom. This painting has so much going on, that I really want to give you all the full breakdown of what is going on, to do the piece of work justice. Ernst Fuchs was a man of many talents, along side painting his... Continue Reading →

Trophic interaction within a single tree community – Raoul Deleo

Tucked away on the second floor of the Rotterdam natural history museum, is an art exhibit by Raoul Deleo. This seems like a really odd place to have this type of display, as it's neither natural or truly historical, but none the less, this is an amazing world created by wondrous mind. 'During the last... Continue Reading →

Atomic Leda – Salvador Dali

Zeus...he was a bit of a boy wasn't he? When he wasn't ruling the rest of the gods, or bringing the thunder, he was off seducing women in animal form. When I say seducing...I'm not convinced they had a lot of choice in the matter. In fairness to Zeus, he probably had a few psychological... Continue Reading →

Naiade – Roberto Ferri

Ferri, really is in my top ten artists. He hits a lot of marks for me, generally covering mythical creatures in the style of art masters, and exploring the darker side of the perception. His pictures are beautifully composed and on occasion serenely grotesque.The subject of this painting is the mythical creature the naiad. In... Continue Reading →

La Nascita Della Sirena – Roberto Ferri

If you have read any of my blogs you'll know when I was a kid I desperately wanted to be either a mermaid or a unicorn (I was a fantastical kid). Not the chinsy mermaids and unicorns which now fill the high street, but the dark and enigmatic creatures that were untameable and held wondrous... Continue Reading →

The Minotaur – George Frederic Watts

Don't you get it when your delivery of 7 virgins and 7 youths is late because UPS won't deliver to your island. All you can do is stand in your tower looking out to sea, hopeful that what ever secondary delivery company they have farmed it out to will turn up soon. Watt's captures the... Continue Reading →

Teatro delle Crudelta – Roberto Ferri

Devastating beauty disguising a deadly purpose.  It's an ongoing theme in mythology. It's no different in Roberto Ferri's theatre of  cruelty. Reminiscent of artists such as Caravaggio, Ferri creates beautiful, erotic and fearful art.   It would be so easy to believe that this was painted as part of the baroque movement, but Ferri painted... Continue Reading →

Pegasus Vs. Chimera

Remember Jason and the Argonauts? Maybe you loved The thief of Baghdad....or maybe Sinbad and the eye of the tiger...this is like the Z movie version of one of these films. The film poster looks exciting doesn't it?  Mythical creatures and the Greeks defending their honour, but and it's a big but, the film doesn't... Continue Reading →
