Quoting M1dn1ght L3G3ND Wow this is great! I'm surprised I made the 1st comment. I really like the silhouette (spelling :p) detail, all that black makes the scene mysterious. At 1st I thought the Owl was a small woman but then I looked again an saw the owl :p. Really great work!!!
Thanks, I try really hard to make these work as a single flat image.

Quoting matt rowntRee Nice one David. I like her headpiece, seems properly Greek. Excellent!
Greek filtered through a certain German perspective.

Quoting David Roberts I like the Technic bricks that make the owl's head and big eyes.
It sees a lot that owl you know.

Quoting Topsy Creatori (StoveTopCreator!) I think what I find, at first, so disturbing about that quote is that after dusk comes the dark of night! But then I remember the light of day returns. Thank goodness for the cyclic, hopefully upwardly spiraling, nature of life. Then my crazy mind starts it's networking... spirals make me think of the golden spiral, then I think of the Phiastos disk! Oh those clever Romans who appreciated the knowledge of those crazy Greeks, whose ancestors were the same peoples as the Minoans, who were perhaps the original Atlantians! David, this is what your art does to me! I LOVE IT! :)
I'm glad it got you thinking :). The quote is a famous (if you're into philosophy that is) statement made by Hegel in the Philosophy of Right. The full quote reads: 'One more word about giving instruction as to what the world ought to be. Philosophy in any case always comes on the scene too late to give it... When philosophy paints its gloomy picture then a form of life has grown old. It cannot be rejuvenated by the gloomy picture, but only understood. Only when the dusk starts to fall does the owl of Minerva spread its wings and fly.'
