Earthy Yet Ethereal

Klimt's work is earthy yet ethereal, decorative yet symbolic.

Gustav Klimt — Water Serpents II — 1904-07

Klimt's decoration is reminiscent of art nouveau millefiori glass.

I like this piece, but some of his work I love. It's odd, but sometimes I find his compositions unbalanced, and other times perfect. In this one, the patterns don't quite work for me.
