Description

Verse from "An Old Man Lies Down with the Lion, which inspired my painting, "Boyhood Coat of Mail." The dragon is bitter disappointment. Maj says "I have felt its hunger since boyhood. One midnight it (the dragon) moved its lair, to the lower bitter regions of my soul. It began to feed on what I feared and prayed against....It is prisoner to the heavy coat of mail."
