About The Artwork: 

"Mantis Atlantis" is a surreal black-and-white illustration featuring an imaginative creature with the body of a praying mantis and the head of a majestic deer. A praying mantis and a deer are both animals that are rich in symbolic meaning, and their combination in an artwork or creative expression can create a powerful message.

The praying mantis is a symbol of stillness, patience, and mindfulness. It can represent the idea of waiting and observing, as the praying mantis waits for its prey to approach and then strikes with lightning-fast precision. The praying mantis can also represent the idea of balance and harmony, as it moves with grace and accuracy and can adapt to its environment.

The deer is a symbol of gentleness, grace, and intuition. It can represent the idea of sensitivity and awareness, as the deer can perceive danger and react quickly. The deer can also represent the idea of spiritual development and growth, as it is often associated with the heart chakra and the concept of unconditional love.

The image can represent being present in the moment and using intuition and sensitivity to navigate life. It can also mean finding balance and harmony in one's life by being patient and observing one's surroundings.

“It's like everyone tells a story about themselves inside their own head. Always. All the time. That story makes you what you are. We build ourselves out of that story.” ― Patrick Rothfuss
