Very interesting - never really focused on the imagery, but I immediately associated it to how the Capricorn in the Zodiac is usually represented, that is a goat with either a fish/snake body. I wonder whether this influenced it on some level...

Love the blog by the way, I appreciate the pictures especially - always makes it come alive...


Through the darkness of future past, the magician longs to see,
one chants out between two worlds - "Fire, walk with me".
