Heaven and Earth
Many a night from yonder ivied casement, ere I went to rest,
Did I look on great Orion sloping slowly to the West.
Many a night I saw the Pleiads, rising thro' the mellow shade,
Glitter like a swarm of fire-flies tangled in a silver braid.
Tennyson's words have come to life in the fiery colors of a marvelous series of paintings by Australian artist Marie Greene in an exhibition at the Percolator Gallery in Brisbane. Those who can should visit the exhibition or alternatively view the collection on-line at Marie's site.
