Roman Lake by Tabon Roman Lake by Tabon
I had the honour to be commissioned by the lady who sculpted some of the Warhammer beasties. One of which was a cockatrice ( this: [link] ) and the brief was simply to be inspired by it and allow myself to endeavor in the freedom of my artistic license. This is the result!

Roman Lake, so called for the numerous stone statues embelishing the land. It was discovered that the area was occupied by a Cockatrice, and so, with great difficulty, material was tied over its eyes to control the population of the rest of the lands inhabitants...

Astonishing and very atmospheric peace of art!  I was mesmerized the moment I saw it. Thank you a lot for creating and sharing it with us.
I was inspired to introduce a cockatrice to my pen-and-paper RPG game based on this image and this image alone was enough to write up a long and very touching back story. 
That is what a good piece of art should do - inspire and awe.

it's a dragon that's fallen from the sky because the Cockatrice looked at it and turned it into stone

haven't really decided. I suppose considering it's not all boulders it could have been swooping close to the water before getting solidified

my mom was the same about places like that, it may be because they sell things like DnD or Pokemon cards or other "demonic" things lol

xDD you one of those people to spend a fortune on things like that? I like Warhammer, particularly the Death Korps, but I didn't know about it as a child and these days I have too much to spend money on already xD

hah I've missed standing there since I left in January. Dying to go back. Looks like you've got a fair few industrial urbexing sites in your area, little jealous xD don't really get many around here/English police are rather strict.

Unfortunately we have stupid local politicians here, they think they're clever. They're not. Instead of preserving the old industrial structures, these deadheads want to see their own memorials. The result are examples of endlessly boring (funcional) archtecticture made out of steel, glass and concrete. But besides that, it's a nice city to live in ... ;)

Urgh. As much as I approve of utilitarian designs... they really have to be done well and honestly, most of them I just can't stand. I love the raw functional aspect of certain machinery but when you look at things like counsel houses or the mining houses that were once built in England but still hold.. they're ghastly.
