Forbidden Magic - art by Geoff Taylor


In this painting by Geoff Taylor there stands a beautiful woman, with a spear and twin daggers at her waist. Upon her head like a crown is an ornate jewelled headdress or helmet. The sun is setting into a red sky reflected in the water behind her where three dragons are passing through. On the river bank in the distance silhouetted by the sun are tropical palms trees.
