Acorn and the Dryad by Esao Andrews

According to a Pixelsurgeon interview, no member of Esao's family had ever seen his work since he was a wee boy of 8 years growing up in Arizona, until recently.

This painting is that of a dryad and a unicorn, both creatures of mythology. The dryad is a creature of Greek mythology whose asso-ciation is usually tied to the wood Nymphs. Dryads are the tree spirits of the oak tree, while unicorns are probably the most popular mytho-logical creature.

The most famous painting of a dryad is by Evelyn De Morgan (1850-1919).

That's wild that no one in Esao's family saw his work for all those years, and sad. I like mythology, too.

Acton Bell: His work is probably very personal to him. Aww.

Taylor: I think you're thinking of Morrowind? :P

Kenvin: The piece makes the nakeyness, not the nakeyness makes the piece.
