Last Of The Night by barcyd
When the mysterious sorcerer Alarumedes brought forth from the realm of Night the seven great beasts and the seventy-seven lesser beasts, he gained great in wisdom from the experience. When he had ascertained all he could, and before the beasts could turn upon him, he spoke the thirteen syllables of power, returning the seven great bests to the realm of Night. He then spoke the twenty-seven syllables to return the lesser beasts, be he stumbled at one point and one of these magic creatures remained behind. The Last of the Night is a sinuous, darkly speckled, highly textured predator with horns of the ebon ibex, stark milk-poisoned fangs and dark penetrating amber glass eyes with slit pupils set in deep hollows. Its mottled metal like wings serve it well in lurking among the leaves of the Forest of Brass and Silver, as it stalks its prey. This eldritch guardian measures 2-3/4 " in height and 4-1/2" in length and is crafted from polymer clay, as is most of my work. Though, when clay alone is insufficient I will use other media to achieve the rich detail and varied textures that please the discerning collector and help make my artwork something you would be proud to own and display. I wish I could show you all this piece individually and in person. The photos in no way do it justice. The deep richness of the color and the incredible textures are truly a treat for the senses. Thank you for taking the time to look at my work.
