The Liberation of Andromeda

A story in three parts: with winged feet, Perseus flies in to kill the monster Cetus and rescue his future bride, to the celebration of the crowd. My sister is in Rome, a bride herself, honeymooning. They sent me this postcard and said it reminded her of my dreams. And here it is for you.

That's fantastic. Especially the detail of the water surrounding Cetus. Looks more like the Ren stuff from some of the Dutch masters than Italian. Very cool.

I like the two little soldiers hustling down from the town on the left.

I Wish I Could Fly Like That......

Me, too, but I feel like it would be like when you are a kid and put water wings on your ankles to try and walk on water.
