Vestae Sidus: The Star of Vesta Picture

Inspired by artist, Caitlin Hackett, caitlinhackett.carbonmade.com. This is a 29" X 39" piece and is the biggest thing I have created to this point. It took me over 70 hours to complete and is drawn entirely with ballpoint pen. If you couldn't figure it out, the image is of a Capricorn, which is a fish goat type creature. It is a zodiac sign and actual constellation hence the title. In mythology, the Capricorn is said to be a bringer of rain and harvests and Vesta, the goddess of the hearth, acts as one of the Capricorn's Goddesses/High Priestesses. Capricorns are born between December 22 to January 20. Some traditional
Capricorn traits include being practical and prudent, ambitious and disciplined, patient and careful, and humorous and reserved. On the dark side, they can be pessimistic and fatalistic and miserly and grudging.

Yay Capricorns unite!!
