I have no idea how this image came to me--it simply popped into my head as I was looking through some old photographs taken by my late Great Uncle Fred (1901-1997), who traveled extensively during his 96 years.

He had a photo of a giant statue, of a man pulling back the string on his bow, ready to fire. As soon as I saw that picture, this image of the statue--mostly in black, but with a few highlights--in front of a day-glo background popped into my brain. So I just tried to get it down as best I could.

I added the second background color to give it more of a sense of movement, but for better or worse its pretty much what I saw at that moment.
