a) Necronom IV (work 303) , acrylic on paper on wood, 150x100cm, 1976
b) References Alice and the flamingo from Lewis Carroll's Alice In Wonderland (Published 1865) by John Tenniel (with the idea that it's referenced in Triumph Of The Sphinx by Ernst Fuchs (1966) and "Saturn devouring his son" (1819–1823) by Francisco Goya) ?
c) The main body of the flamingo becomes the shoulder area
d) The long neck of the flamingo becomes the upper back appendage almost linking up with the rear of the head
e) The skirt becomes the back pipes and the ribcage
f) Another thought might be that while it doesn't tie in with my idea about the layout of the composition, if we flip the Alice and the flamingo illustration around, I might wonder if flamingo head and neck becomes is used for this phallic tail like thing curving up on the right.
