Scythian Stag Tattoo

Today's art is inspired by historical tattoos on the Siberian "ice Maiden" from the 5th century B.C. and a mirror buried with her. I combined parts of her highly stylized animal tattoos with a sculpture of a stag on a carved wooden mirror placed in her grave, and added Pictish spirals to accentuate the movement of the hip and shoulder. The result, rendered all in dots, brings alive the ancient love of the thrill of the chase.
