Artist's impression of an illustration in Vaticinia Nostradami:
A monstruous king above a sea of flames. He wears the phrygian cap (1) and the ears of an ass. According to the interpretation of the prophecies: when the sanculottes(2) took power during the french revolution, Pius VI was taken prisoner.
(1)the Phrygian cap is sometimes called a liberty cap; in artistic representations it signifies freedom and the pursuit of liberty.
(2)In the French Revolution, the sans-culottes were the radical partisans of the lower classes; (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sans-culottes)
In this weird entry I simply mix the images and use burn and dodge (5 years and 5 days ago)
