The Moon Priestess


This is a mixed media 24" x 36" painting inspired by ERB's (Edgar Rice Burroughs) novels. The Sun is considered perfect and glorious, whereas Moon bears the imperfections i.e. more close to us, the flawed humans. She is the worshiper of moon, a deity that is similar to her walks of life.
Wish, I could post a larger image to show the colors and texture ranges but people use copy/paste too much :)
