The Atlas of Dreams - Color Plate 120 by 

While this monstrous seedpod looks like a medieval battle weapon to us, to the ladybug it’s just mountainous terrain.

“Color Plate 119” combines a photograph from stock.xchng photographer Retha Scholtz with a painting by my father, Gus Maier.

“The Atlas Of Dreams” is an ongoing project started in 1999. Each plate is composed of several different images combined to create something greater than the sum of its parts. Source images include historic engravings, NASA photos of space and the Earth’s surface, abstract images, the artwork of my father: Gus Maier, and of course my own artwork – recycled and reused. Watch out for stray butterflies, fish, snakes, and other animals…
