Only 1 available

Offered for sale is an archival art print of artist Lynnette Shelley's original work "The Imbroglio".

An Imbroglio is a disagreement or a complicated state of affairs, as well as a confused heap.
I wanted to do some more Celtic knotwork inspired artwork and I thought that title was perfect for this.

Cockatrices (or basilisks) are legendary creatures that are essentially two legged dragons with rooster heads. If they look at you they kill you or turn you to stone, like Medusa. The only way to kill them is to have them look in a mirror (thus petrifying themselves) or the call of a rooster.

According to the Mythical Creatures Guide:
http://www.mythicalcreaturesguide.com/

"The Cockatrice can cause death with a single glance. Reports indicate that anything catching sight of the lethal bird’s eyes is turned instantly to stone. Just as deadly is their poisonous saliva which can fell even an elephant.

Also known as a Basilisk, a Cockatrice has the head and feet of a cockerel and the tail of a serpent. The Cockatrice is believed to be the product of a seven-year-old cockerel’s egg, laid during a full moon and then hatched for nine years by a serpent or toad.

There are a few ways to protect oneself from a Cockatrice. One is to carry something reflective – like a mirror – and turn the creature’s gaze back on it. Another is to keep either a weasel or a cockerel nearby. The weasel is said to be the mortal enemy of the Cockatrice, While the crowing of the cockerel is even more effective as it causes the Cockatrice to have fatal fits and ultimately thrash itself to death."

What is Giclee?
Giclee (pronounced Gee'clay) is a French term for an archival art print of museum-quality reproduction. The image has all the tonalities and hues of the original painting and is printed on acid-free fine art paper. Because it's of archival quality, the colors will not fade over time.
