Artwork Description

My entry for Pixelbrush.net's "Classically Revived" contest.

The challenge: take a painting by one of the Old Masters (they had to have died more than 80 years ago), and reinterpret it with a twist. I chose "The Pelt Merchant of Cairo" by Jean-Léon Gérôme and decided to transform him into a genie (or d'jinni?) and bring the tiger back to life.
