The Prison Door by lastlabyrinth The Prison Door by lastlabyrinth
"Fearing his daughter's power, the corrupt mage-king Aktaed condemned her to die in a mountain tomb on the shores of a far-flung isle. The gentle princess accepted her fate without fear, asking only for a last glimpse at the stars.

"As she relinquished her mortality, her soul became a holy prism, a medium through which pure and auspicious magic was refracted and spread across an ailing land; and her prison became her palace.

"Thus did Saktina become the loving guardian of Vosteghem."

--a Yulin folktale




(I may have mentioned before that the Yulin have some different ideas about Saktina; this image represents one of them. Maybe there's a bit of truth to it, as well, though.)

My favorite complimentary colors! This has a beautiful, ethereal storybook feel to it. I can't help but think of Tolkien.

Ack, I have nothing to add that hasn't been said already. But I love your work! :)
