The Origin of Fire by Junryou-na-Kokoro The Origin of Fire by Junryou-na-Kokoro
DOWNLOAD FOR OPTIMAL VIEWING EXPERIENCE

Well, here is the piece that I entered into the Colorado State's Art & Science Exhibition last month. It was selected to be a part of the show - one of less than 40 pieces chosen from over 150 entries this year! I was shocked and excited when I heard that my piece was to be in the show.

So here y'all are - the Apache legend of the origin of fire. Basically, Fox steals fire from the Firefly village after learning how to fly from the Geese. Then he passes the fire on to the rest of the world, but in the end, the fireflies punish him for stealing their fire. As a result, Fox cannot use fire for himself.

Enjoy!

:nod: I agree with you. This is the type of work I do outside of dA. :eyes:

The piece is based off of the Apache legend called the "Origin of Fire." If you look it up on Google, it'll probably be there. :3

Thank you, Scarlet!
