I have recently tried my hand at a little sculpture.
Regular visitors will not be surprised at the subject matter.

limboloism 2

As you can see, I have pasted Humbaba's pattern onto the musician/magician.

I love to draw musicians playing and the phallic guitar transfers from the snake...

Then... The desert of blues.

Suddenly, I began to think about a very tasty project I have been asked to work on.
So I drew a magician with a snake... Who is also Humbaba.

limboloism 1

I am sometimes asked about my working 'methods'.
You should read this from the bottom - up.
(Humans evolved from their feet upwards and the blogger creature seems to be schemed the same way, so:)

and Humbaba, monster of the labyrinth.

These tiles are supposed to be in the kitchen so, of course, I decided to illustrate the Epic of Gilgamesh.
Here you can see Gilgamesh,

I made plaster casts of a ceramic tile.
Then I drilled holes in 2 of them.
(As you can see, the rain dripped on one.)
