Just finished

"The Taleb's jinn", Watercolour on paper


This painting was completed yesterday and represents a wee bit of a struggle, but I think it was ultimately worth it.
A Taleb is a student of the magic arts. "Moroccans seem very suggestible to occult practices, genies and the like." 'The plurals "jinn"'. They're taken seriously:even intellectuals look over their shoulders in case a genie is following.
(taken from- "The city in the 1960s" by Anthony Gladstone-Thompson)
The lamp is a contemporary creation, but I like the juxtaposition of the modern object with ancient symbolism.
