Salvador's Pissoir

"As Rip and his companion approached them, they suddenly desisted from their play, and stared at him with such fixed statue-like gaze, and such strange, uncouth, lack-lustre countenances, that his heart turned within him, and his knees smote together. His companion now emptied the contents of the keg into large flagons, and made signs to him to wait upon the company. He obeyed with fear and trembling; they quaffed the liquor in profound silence, and then returned to their game...."

[Washington Irving]

Note: This is a slightly different version of a first and last post to the gallery of a site that claimed something new and revolutionary in the way of computer graphics but was in the end, as in the beginning, quintessentially mediocre and conventional. I posted it and was immediately banned. I am flattered that, even unintentionally, it was understood. Later, also in a slightly different version, it appeared, in another gallery where I have also been banned, as the first installment in the R. Mutt series.
