.... one of the Dwarf Kings? Or is it Forlong the Fat in his younger days?

Could really be either one! [In reply to] Can't Post

I can't decide which idea I like more. What a great picture.

Silverlode

Roads go ever ever on
Under cloud and under star
Yet feet that wandering have gone
Turn at last to home afar.
Eyes that fire and sword have seen
And horror in the halls of stone
Look at last on meadows green
And trees and hills they long have known.

Isn't it! [In reply to] Can't Post

A lot of Vrubel's other pictures are a bit disturbing - demons and things (the poor man went mad in the end). But I like this one, I must say. A bogatyr is a warrior of ancient Russia.

Maybe not Forlong, but not many furlongs [In reply to] Can't Post

possible for his horse, I deem! Laugh

It does have a very Dwarvish/Middle Earth look to it.

I have no idea [In reply to] Can't Post

but what a great painting! I'm really drawn to his eyes and face... the most pronounced focus of the image, imho. Wonderful!
