Dios mueve al jugador, y éste, la pieza. 
¿Qué Dios detrás de Dios la trama empieza 
de polvo y tiempo y sueño y agonía?

God moves the player, an he moves the chess piece
What God behind God starts this story
of dust and time and dream and agony?

Beautiful work! Archaic Revival? Any connection between this series and Terence Mckenna?

Thank you!  Absolutely....  the series will feature a figure that represents our conscious mind (both individually and collectively), entering a world of the subconscious, seeking out artifacts/lessons of the old ways... wisdom that remains dormant in all of us, it's there, and we know it's there, but we don't quite know how to go about looking for it..... we've been so externalized as a culture.

Yes.  But more importantly "As above, so below, as within, so without, as the universe, so the soul…” Hermes Trismegistus

Thank you!  The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago... the second best time is now.  Pick up a pencil (but only if it's fun)

Holy, amazingly incredible! This Concept is stunning and The Figure in The Hand looks radical! The big hand, small glowing figure, fingers,palm, sky, stars, atmosphere, textures, design, composition, uniqueness, style, lighting, colors, and other details are also spectacular!
