My art group put forth a challenge to interpret a poem. I chose Shelly's "Ozymandias". Here is the result. Actually it is the second result. The first is still in process and is more abstract. One of the world's great poems, it provokes thought about man's arrogance and the fleeting existence of our 'great works'.

Playing with Tsukineko inks. Painted desert and pyramid. Quilted following shapes. Then added the crumbling statue, using a technique suggested by Cyndi Souder. Was a fun little project in response to a challenge to interpret a poem.
