Stamens of Light by Carlos Ortega Elizalde

rendered in Maya, Arnold

An elfin girl sits on the winding sprouts of a plant or tree, nursing a flower. The sight is otherworldy, and the look on the girl’s face seems to confirm this, as if for a moment, directing her attention to us-outsiders-who happened to stumble upon her, disrupting her reverie.

Carlos is an amazing artist from Mexico. His work mostly deals with the strange and whimsical, and is always a pleasure to see.
