[tweet by @nick_kapur:
"The Sessho-seki, a famous rock in Nasu, Japan that was said to have imprisoned the evil nine-tailed fox demoness Tamamo-no-Mae, was found broken in half. After nearly 1,000 years, the demon vixen is presumably once again on the loose." [link to tweet]
[Image ID: a large boulder on a barren, gray slope is split in two. like something cracked it. in the right foreground of the photo is a wooden sign with the kanji 殺生石, Sessho-seki]

Originally it looked like the photo below:

[image ID: same boulder as above, but whole, bound in sacred rope. In the right foreground is the same wooden sign with the same kanji.]

She cried with a piercing voice,
                calling upon her father [Zeus], the son of Kronos, the highest and the best.
                But not one of the immortal ones, or of human mortals,
           heard her voice. Not even the olive trees which bear their splendid harvest.

Egyptian ring from 1295-664 BCE, made of faience, with a cat and kittens perched above a bound bundle of flowering papyrus designed to represent a marsh, probably being linked to the myth of the "Faraway Goddess".

"Above"
the barrier between worlds just seems so thin. I've always loved the look of an aureole. Now I've been adding it more and more to my paintings. It's just a great compositional element.

Long ago, darkness reigned over the night.  People were afraid and remained inside   their shelters from sundown until sunrise.   The goddess Selene saw their fear and   gave light to their nocturnal world   by driving her moon chariot across the starry sky.

The lake scarlets the same instant as the maple. Let others try to say this is not passion.
Personal piece! Email [email protected] for commission inquiries :)
Translation of Yiddish in bottom right: "But if you take an axe to your syllables, your sounds, // I will dance out from their ruins and capture you once more."
Transliteration (may have switched a letter or two: "Nor vesti mit a hak tseshpaltn dayne zilbn, klangen, // Ikh vel fun zay aroystantsn un vel dikh vider fangen."
