The Demon of Venice by borda The Demon of Venice by borda
the word Daimon is an ancient word translated to demon by the early Christians it means a benevolent spirit or helper the only thing evil about it is our own desires and wishes as it will show you what you expect to see :)


oil/canvas,100x80 cm, finally done, sorry for reposting it, but is quite a big difference, and may be interesting to see the work in progress :P

Daily Deviation

Given 2010-04-06
Almost always, it's the red that leaps at our awareness, and here in The Demon of Venice by *borda, that aspect is put to marvelous application, zoning our line of vision directly towards the eye of the storm and then left to veer in accordance with the absorbing motions throughout and beyond... terrifically stimulating and leaving much food for thought.

This so beautiful. The main picture jumps out right away but when you take a moment to apprecate the background details it really brings out just how whimsical the demon is.

Wow, Interesting words about the Daimon.
Socrates was charged of willing to introduce new cults in the ancient Greece. He talked sometimes about these daimonions, these voices coming from inside... Interesting painting.
