City #10: Kashkraa (Shakthi B)

18 x 24", Pen and Gouache on Paper

Long ago, the people of Kashkraa discovered a way to capture the energy of the sun. A tall, meandering fence made up of delicate yet durable wire surrounds the city as well as the great ball of energy that is suspended at the fence's peak. The outside viewer might be overwhelmed by the rambling labyrinth that occasionally shoots bursts of fire from the fractures near the powerful, glowing core. But those inside, looking up, become hypnotized by the dancing colors and the fire's music that hisses notes that are both light and black.
