guardian spirit of the waters

Odilon Redon, Guardian Spirit of the Waters, 1878. Art Institute of Chicago.

A friend on Facebook has this up as her profile picture and I just love it, nearly as much as the Serafini Pulcinella flying on the clothesline.

When things loom, is must be Redon.(One way or another, escape is indicated.)

It's from 1878? Looks really contemporary.

lovely. the eyes remind me of Teja's.

km: maybe contemporary is imitative?

banno: come to think of it, they are teja-y eyes!
