Hmm. This inspires some fun thoughts. Is this your piece? Quite gorgeous.

Makes me think of:
A candle incarnate.
Last dream of a dead city.
The virgin Mary, oddly enough.
An ambassador of the sun.

No, I have zip artistic talent of the painting/sculpting/crafts kind. In fact, the women at my previous Baptist church always felt a little sorry for me. I couldn't even glue a ribbon properly to a basket and had no idea what a glue gun WAS.

That's a painting by one of my fave artist, the surrealist Remedios Varo.

It's called (depending on how you translate "La Llamada") The Calling or The Called One. And there's a Play on words since "llama" is the word for flame. And "llamada" is like saying "flaming one" in a weird way. So, I like it. :D
