Where the eagles soar

I've always enjoyed reading about the small pockets of civilization that continue to live with their culture relatively unchanged for hundreds, if not thousands of years, so I was fascinated  by a story on the BBC about a Kazakh girl who is training to hunt with a golden eagle amongst the Altai mountain range in western Mongolia.

The article and the accompanying photographs by Asher Svidensky were the inspiration for this illustration.


Now I want a Golden Eagle. Even more.

    1. If they had themes on which to construct an appropriate story then there's enough character and style in this world to have a lot of fun with.

      It would be lovely to see this world brought to life, and even lovelier to be a part of it :-)
