Part of a series I am working on.
Self Portrait.


The fairy tales featuring the enchanted Mouras are thought to be pre roman, indo-celtic origin, magical maidens who guard castles, caves, bridges, wells, rivers, and treasures.  
She often appears singing and combing her beautiful long hair, golden as gold with a golden comb, and promises to give treasures to whom sets her free by breaking her spell.
According to ancient lore, they are the souls of young maidens who were left guarding treasures that were hidden before other supernatural beings disappeared from the mortal world.
They appear as guardians of the pathways into the earth and are believed to be the builders of the Paleolithic hill forts, The Dolmens and megaliths, They are believed to still live there.

Congrats on the DD; love the pose and I love how the body paint has a feeling of representing something pre-Roman, indo-Celtic in origin.

 A beautiful image indeed; the thick and uncracked golden past lining and striping the skin gives the body such a "twisted" look. The small creases by the thumb and 'inner-hand' enunciate the true human curves in front of her body so well.

 Wherever this was taken or how, I must say that it is extraordinary; the light appears to be so realistically done, mocking the clouded sunlight of an evening.

 The blue illumination by the hair seems to be so outstandingly hidden, yet so visible to the eye of the viewer... Outlining the hair perfectly and making it stand out in contrast to the golden paste outlining the body in a thick layer of stripes.

 Keep up the outstanding work!
