The Grand Design - art by Geoff Taylor


The leader of one of the warring armies is on horseback standing on a rock overlooking the mayhem, he has a double sided axe and is lit with a golden light against the dark of the fortress. A flag and flagpole at his side. In the background a huge fortress with skirmishes happening along the battlements. Silhouetted by a setting sun and the sky red with fire. On the hillside there are cannons firing and soldiers fighting and beyond the lights of a city and plumes of smoke. A bird of prey flies in the sky
