My picture for the end of year quotes book. A colour tinted etching inspired by Lord Dunsany’s story about a prostitute who was dumped into a big pink flower before the gates of hell.

“Into a great pink flower
that was horrible and lovely
grew the soul of La Traviata;
and it had two eyes but no eyelids,
and it stared constantly into
the faces of all the passers by
that went along the dusty road
to Hell  ”

- Lord Dunsany
