This drawing started out innocently... . It was a mere sketch of a pretty face in a moleskin notebook. Then her sad eyes took over and I couldn't leave this story untold. This young woman has come across a Sphinx, a rare creature in ancient mythology. The glowing beast has the head and bust of a woman, not too different from her own, the body of a powerful lion and the tail of a dragon. It symbolizes mysteries, riddles, and of course secrets. Is our naive girl learning a secret of the sphinx's great wisdom? Or is she about to determine her fate with the riddle of a paw?
