Rise like Lions after slumber – I’m Ready, Come on – let’s go!!

A passage from the poem Masque of Anarchy by Percy Shelley:

“Rise like Lions after slumber

In unvanquishable number,

Shake your chains to earth like dew

Which in sleep had fallen on you-

Ye are many — they are few”

Rise like Lions after slumber in unvanquishable number, lion, human, spirit, the lion sleeps no more, manga art, anime, illustration, life, energy, stream,

I used one of my character design sketches to paint this painting, it’s inspired by the book cover art of a book that I read by David Icke called Human Race Get Off Your Knees – The Lion Sleeps No More. This illustration is my own intepretation of we humans waking up to and remembering who we are and where we come from, part of that sea of energy – infinite consciousness/awareness.

When we are empowered with self-determination and self confident and free, we have energy to tackle life and live it to the full!!

When we are empowered to be knowledgeable and know what is going on in the world, we are ready to stand up in the numbers against all injustices and make a difference in our own lifes. We will take our power back!!

People and all life have Chi/Qi/Ki, this energy is the life force, I represented it as the Lifestream from Final Fantasy VII, that sea of knowledge/awareness/consciousness energy that beings return to after they die. That game is of course fictional but its concepts and depiction of consciousness is quite right!!




About Way of the Artchemist

Love of manga/anime, telling of stories in film and tv around sci-fi and fantasy, has influenced me to draw in the way that I do and, it's these interests that led me to the alternative media and made me question the nature of reality; exploring the ideas around consciousness, and the philosophies of life.
