I just saw Avatar this afternoon. I thought the movie was inordinately amazing--so over-the-top visually-incredible-I-can't-even-tell-you.
This image is not that in the least--but yet I long for this (the above.) I want the painting in my world, and I am relieved it is in fact.
I am buoyed by the fact that Avatar and Helmut Federle paintings can both necessarily exist.
