colophon

Via the ever outstanding Kottke, we are treated once again to the imaginative creations of art Roberto Benavidez (previously, channelling the bestiaries of Hiernoymous Bosch in piñata form) whose latest project consists of a series of legendary creatures and chimera that populate the illustrations and marginalia of the fourteenth century illuminated volume called the Luttrell Psalter as metallic ornaments. The intricate drawings of hybridised avians transformed into sculpture that accompany each psalm are referred to as grotesques.
