Captain Edward Teach, the infamous pirate Blackbeard, was killed off the coast of North Carolina on this date in 1718.  Like many pirates during the so-called golden age of piracy, Blackbeard started out in the navy, moved into privateering, and eventually ended up in piracy.  He was only marginally successful as a pirate, but the romanticized idea of his piratical career lives on [Captain Jack Sparrow….].  In fact, he was not particularly murderous or tyrannical and, in the end, spending an exorbitant amount of time, men, and resources to capture and kill him really is something only the Americans would contrive.

This piece is called “Ascent of Man and the Destruction of Magic”.
It was created for the ArtOrder Inspiration challenge.
Inspirations are my favourite artists and a recent trip to the MET where I saw even more beautiful works of sculpture and ancient crafts.
Klimt, Mucha, Herbert Draper, Bouguereau, Waterhouse, Frazetta, and a sculpture called “Mourning Victory” from the Melvin Memorial were all inspirations for this.
Medium is Ballpoint pen on Moleskine, 22k Gold Leaf applique and some Digital retouching.

This image is like the path of yoga in an image. The southern triangle as Lucifer, the source of the twin snakes of the right hand orthodoxy and the left hand blasphemy (Kali and Shakti) coiling around the Satanic/Shivaite trident and blossoming in the inverse fire of the Third Eye/Eye of the Architect.
I doubt 1,250 people who reblogged this know any of that….or care…
