Ueni Uidi Uici by donnaquinn
Latin, the very odd monster, likes to chew things and be generally destructive. Its tail speaks Latin, though the brain is located in the head. "Latin" copyright Neltruin.
Although many Ancient Roman statues were originally colourfully painted, I've kept them plain to better contrast with Latin. Other artistic liberties were freely taken, despite me having access to a Latin-reading, university-educated Ancient Rome know-it-all while sketching this work.
Acrylic on acid-free matboard, 40.5 x 50.5 cm.
