NIGHT 283 – THE STORY OF THE SLAUGHTERHOUSE CLEANER AND THE LADY

The little rock becomes anthropomorphised into a lion-man (who seems to be speaking in soundcloud-style decibels… that purple biro is just me diagramming to my students what rendering looks like in close-up!)

Anthropomorphic rocks were a stylistic feature of Persian and Indian miniature painting: when the rocks were being painted, the artist would often add little faces and characters to give the rocks life and spirit. Touches of whimsy from 500 years ago. I spent much of my MA studying these, I love them!
