Zar by ADakin Zar by ADakin
"And when the day dawned, rosy and effulgent, I beheld the green shore of far lands, bright and beautiful, and to me unknown. Up from the sea rose lordly terraces of verdure, tree-studded, and shewing here and there the gleaming white roofs and colonnades of strange temples. As we drew nearer to the green shore the bearded man told me of that land, the Land of Zar, where dwell all the dreams and thoughts of beauty that come to men once and then are forgotten. And when I looked upon the terraces again I saw that what he said was true, for amond the sights before me where many things I had once seen through the mists beyond the horizon and in the phosphorescent depths of oceans. There too were forms and fantasies more splendid than any I had ever known; the visions of young poets who died in want before the world could ever learn what they had seen and dreamed."
From The White Ship by HP Lovecraft

I love how incredibly detailed this piece is, yet it's still shrouded with ambiguity, open to interpretation...just like Lovecraft's descriptions. Excellent.

That is so crazy and intricate, very nice. For some reason the colors kind of annoy me..they are too happy and bright or something. But you quoted Lovecraft, and that alone gets you mad props.
