Whistles and Bells. A Roman wind chime.. Phill Evans Phill Evans Illustration
This sillhouette image is inspired by a wind chime of ancient Roman origin to be found in the British Museum in London. The phallus motif would not have had the immediately bawdy connotations of today but would have symbolised good fortune, virility, luck and fertility. The rear parts of the lion indicate strength and nobility.

This image is made in Adobe Illustrator and finished in Adobe Photoshop.
