A Theriomorph Dance

I discovered this enchanting figure from the Peterborough petroglyphs, Canada: http://www.sacred-destinations.com/…/peterborough-petroglyp…

Peterborough Bunny grey

 

I decided to render it as a silhouette, which I thought would make an interesting graphic.

It brought to mind a theriomorph figure that I am familiar with, a San painting on a farm that we visit every spring – the winged figure below.

It’s on the other side of the world from the Canadian one, and I thought it might be fun to get them dancing. This is what I came up with. Do click on it to see it at a more realistic size.
