Artist's description:

This is a pastel picture that I have drawn using my own photo reference. I love the warm colours and so decided to use them as the background. The end result made me think of the William Blake poem, The Tyger :
Tyger Tyger, burning bright,
In the forests of the night;
What immortal hand or eye,
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

In what distant deeps or skies.
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
On what wings dare he aspire?
What the hand, dare seize the fire?

And what shoulder, & what art,
Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat,
What dread hand? & what dread feet?

What the hammer? what the chain,
In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? what dread grasp,
Dare its deadly terrors clasp!

When the stars threw down their spears
And water'd heaven with their tears:
Did he smile his work to see?
Did he who made the Lamb make thee?

Tyger Tyger burning bright,
In the forests of the night:
What immortal hand or eye,
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?

I love the imagery conjured up by the words Fearful Symmetry and so decided to use that as my title.

This piece has been double mounted and framed professionally. It will make an eye-catching and stunning addition to any room.
