Consistency, Lion of Ninivé



Dear Helene

You used consistency as criterium. It is something I admire in your work, and a useful criterium. (Though Picasso and Malevich have been forgiven some serious inconsistencies ;-)). (I was never very fond of them.) However, a lot of experimenting is still going on. At least for me, it is not always easy to distinguish the style of the software from the style of the artist. It might be difficult to meet your standard. I for one can't meet it..

A blessing in disguise, that the wounded lion of Ninivé (Mosul) is in the British Museum.

'Wounded lion' (Assyria 645 – 635 BC) timeless symbol of the fate of beauty and art in war.
