Mysterious and Ancient

I love the subtle coloration and lighting of this acrylic painting. I fantasize that this is a detail from a grove temple, deep in a mysterious and ancient grotto.

Kazuhiko Sano — circa 1993

I agree, it is a great painting.
I am so sorry to hear that Kazuhiko Sano passed away in 2011.

She does seem very much alive, and that she will emerge from the rock.

I have a feeling this painting is based on an Alphonse Mucha picture.
