Inspiration for this image is part of the poem by Reiner Maria Rilke titled "Sonnets to Orpheus".

"...O this is the beast who does not exist.

They didn't know that, and in any case

--with its stance, its arched neck and easy grace,

the light of its limpid gaze --they could not resist

but loved it though, indeed, it was not. Yet since

they always gave it room, the pure beast persisted.

And in that loving space, clear and unfenced,

reared it's head freely and hardly needed

to exist. They fed it not with grain nor chaff

but fortified and nourished it solely with

the notion that it might yet come to pass,

so that, at length, it grew a single shaft

upon it's brow and to a virgin came

and dwelled in her and in her silvered glass..."

Bardzo umiejętnie zrobione. Te wszystkie materie: niebo wygląda tak lekko, z kolei trąby twardo, ziemia też fajnie wyszła (jak jakiś księżycowy pył).

"Animals are purely physical entities, having no mental or spiritual substance, animals can’t reason, think, feel pain or suffer". "Animals, are mere machines with no consciousness"
"Animals are noisy machines"

I know this work is not about it, but my first thought when i watched this, was René Descartes.

thank you very much :)
Descartes had a terrific view on this matter.

Worse, that in many places, some people are thinking the same about other people.

wonderful artwork here!
i love the idea aswell as the composition which is dark and sad but a bit mixed with a twist.

This picture is maybe the more pretty I seen on Deviant art. I don't understand why only 3 persons put it in their favourites.
Really nice job.
Originality is very rare on deviant art.
