The Spellcoats by Diana Wynn-Jones - art by Geoff Taylor
Der Fluss der Seelen - art by Geoff Taylor


In this painting by Geoff Taylor, there is a vast desolate landscape in the far distance there is a mountain range with some high thunderous clouds. A stream flows into a crevasse and makes a waterfall as it tumbles down a rainbow is arcing out over the edge of the hole. On the edge stands a girl she is holding her arm out over the chasm and is wearing a multi-coloured cloak over her long dress, her blonde hair is being blown by the wind.
