"Siege" Completed

A passage about a fight between a wounded seabird and innumerous little armored crabs on the beach in "Europe Central" by William Vollman touched me very much and propelled me to visualize this epical fight. The wounded noble bird being overwhelmed by numerous small but lethal enemies represents, to me, a metaphor of our epoch, if I can presume to compare human species to the noble bird.

After months's labor, "Siege" is finished:
