Leo - Exemption from Heracles by ryoades Leo - Exemption from Heracles by ryoades
Leo - exemption from Heracles

The Nemeic lion devastated villages and towns, and his hard coat made him invulnerable. Heracles turned to the lions and strangled him with bare hands ... Freed from his chains from the underworld, he comes gently back to protect the people. In the stars, he finds all his glory ...

The eighth zodiac signs from 12th, Leo / Leonus or lion.
The ideas, as well as the stories about the zodiac signs, reflect both the mythical background again, as well as its own free interpretation. I wanted the lion's not his fate over to the Hercules and so I left him his own chains in the stars blow to him on earth as a protector, he was the myth that return.
The basic concept was a completely another location. The woman should be equal to a cat and then transform itself. Through the many hours of work developed the picture but in a completely different direction and the actual lion was added. In contrast to the detailed work, I agree with the composition is not completely satisfied, but I wanted this picture finally quit, sometimes perhaps the better way. I still hope that eventually a little of the concept is evident. In the complexity of the details, this is probably been the most difficult picture. Details in large recording follow shortly ...

Leo - - die befreiung vom Herakles

der nemeische Löwe verwüstete Dörfer und Städte und sein hartes Fell machte ihn unverwundbar. Herakles stellte sich dem Löwen und erwürgte ihn mit bloßen Händen ... befreit von seinen Ketten aus der Unterwelt, kehrt er anmütig und sanft zurück um den Schutz der Menschen zu gewähren. In den Sternen findet er seine ganze Pracht ...

Das achte Tierkreiszeichen aus 12., Leo / Leonus oder auch Löwe.
Die Ideen als auch die Geschichten zu den Tierkreiszeichen, spiegeln sowohl den mythischen Hintergrund wieder, als auch die eigene freie Interpretation. Ich wollte den Löwen nicht sein Schicksal dem Herakles übergeben und so ließ ich ihm seine eigenen Ketten in den Sternen sprengen, um ihn auf Erden als Beschützer, der er dem Mythos entsprach, wiederkehren.
Das Grundkonzept war ein völlig aderes. Die Frau sollte gleich einer Katze sein und sich zu jener transformieren. Durch die vielen Arbeitsstunden entwickelte sich das Bild jedoch in eine völlig andere Richtung und der eigentliche Löwe kam hinzu. Im Gegensatz zu der Detailarbeit, bin ich mit der Komposition nicht völlig zufrieden, jedoch wollte ich dieses Bild endlich ad akta legen, manchmal der vielleicht bessere Weg. ich hoffe dennoch das letztlich ein wenig von dem Konzept herüberspringt. In der Komplexität der Details, ist dies wohl bisher das schwierigste Bild gewesen. Details in Großaufnahme folgen in Kürze ...
