Pegasus by synconi Pegasus by synconi
dumque gravis somnus colubrasque ipsamque tenebat,
eripuisse caput collo; pennisque fugacem
Pegason et fratrem matris de sanguine natos.

(Ovid, Metamorphoses 4:784-786)


My entry for the April Artisan Crafts Challenge whose theme is mythology.
I couldn't find any paper thin enough in my paper stash except for a library receipt, so you can faintly make out the printed words and numbers on little Pegasus' neck.

Thank you for looking!

:heart:


+ Folded from a library receipt, 10 x 10cm thin paper

I'm just curious, is there a particular reason pegasus is in Florida/Georgia?
The map and the lighting make it a really cool picture =) well done

Thank you super much, Diego! I've been clearing up my GIANT stack of organ/piano music (there's piles and piles of the stuff on the organ bench, on the neighbouring table and chairs; all higgledy-piggledy and in no darn order) and discovered a big and beautiful atlas, so I thought I'd put it into use! :aww: :heart:
