TLHOD: Meshe and the tree by DappleHack TLHOD: Meshe and the tree by DappleHack
"The tree said in its rooted being: "All my leaves are seen, but one, this one in the darkness cast by all of the others. This one leaf I keep secret to myself. Who will see it in the darkness of my leaves? and who will count the number of them?"
Meshe passed through the Forest of Ornen in his wanderings, and from that one tree plucked that one leaf."
- Ursula Kroeber Le Guin, "The Left Hand Of Darkness"

This is my first attempt of illustrating "The Left Hand of Darkness" with monotype. Meshe is a legendary profet of Gethen, who saw the past and the future at once.

Watercolour monotype
