    I have been working on the Celtic Mask - I think I have it about done.
    The colors seem to be working between the Celtic Mask and the matting.

    Awesome! though it looks more like Islamic tessellated tilework that Celtic to me.

    and if I may be a boring old stickler - the knotwork that gets called Celtic is actually more Anglo-Saxon inspired than Celt. True Celtic art seldom has knots. Being made of geometric circular flowing lines like in this mirror. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...borough%29.jpg

    Boring - I don't think so. And - Thanks for the art history information.

    Wormholes were first introduced to the public over a century ago in a book written by an Oxford mathematician. Perhaps realizing that adults might frown on the idea of multiply connected spaces, he wrote the book under a pseudonym and wrote it for children. His name was Charles Dodgson, his pseudonym was Lewis Carroll, and the book was Through The Looking Glass. ***8212; Michio Kaku

    keep going you're onto something. i like the book theme and design blending. It's entered into Art Deco meets China territory. maybe needs some more contrast between the mask and the background motif. i'm def not crazy about the grey gradient background... Reminds me of Myst
