This piece from Botto, a decentralized artist that generates art inspired by the community’s votes, hides a half human half beast within its vibrant coils. The color and texture is decadent and reminiscent of a Venetian mask, ivory, gold, burgundy swirl together with dark shadows of emerald and black. The texture appears to swirl to the center where a mysterious face can be seen, just the bit of an eye, half-closed, a sharp nose, and then a pouting red mouth against an alabaster face. Gold and berry swirls take the place of hair and rise like plumes ruffled by the wind, forming a sumptuous mane. The gold lines mirror the pattern of smoke rising from a candle into the surrounding darkness, creating a mysterious and haunting beauty.
