It just brings to mind all sorts of ideas for things... dwarven stronghold, Russian fortress, forgotten temple, and anything else that one can come up with. Perhaps it's the home of an air elemental prince and Aladin is finding a genie there somewhere trapped in a crystal ball... Or it's the home of some long forgotten group of Yetti and Siberian Gnomes who worked together to build this fantastic palace and they study ancient magics both tall and small.
Beautiful painting! I love your work. I first came across a stolen version here and informed me it was stolen. told me that you were the orignal artist, so I wanted to come give you the credit you deserve!
