A little illustration for an on-going on-line Lithuanian graphic tale - Seku Seku Pasaką. The fun part - anyone understanding that magical story may continue it!
The woman in cloak is death. She's threatening the king to take away his life unless he completes her three wishes. The sakura's blossom was a totall coincidence.. But it turned out with a point. For Japanese sakura symbolizes fleetingness of human life. And for Chinese - Feminine beauty.
