Wonders of Creation -

"Working Drawing for the Intelligent Design of the Mantis"
$50 Unframed - LUCAS GALLERY

digital collage by Mick Mather
I'm still in a playful mood and as I was cutting and pasting a new piece this morning the rough, sketch-like image of a praying mantis appeared hand in hand with a question. Specifically, where did the insects come from? There aren't a lot of definitive theories on either side of the issue, "how did we get here?" - hence, the rather long winded title which, by the way, I like very much and as far as that goes I think I'll leave it right here. :)

Oooh, I really like this--I may want to use it. How would you like a page in the new Silk Creek II? Don't ask (I know, we did IV first--there IS a story behind that).

LOL - I've been waiting to hear that story. In any case, of course I'd be delighted to be included in SCR II as long as you don't see my appearances as overkill! :)

I like green food, but I would not eat that!

But the picture is great. I like it. It could also be a human's hand. This is very multidimensional!

As I looked at this before posting I could see what appears to be a human head. A gruesome head or face at that and I said to myself, "Elegia will say something about this!" :D
