"This is a fine art print of the Manticore, a mythological  creature from ancient Persia. The print is a 18\" x 12\" on archival paper with a matte finish. The original was done on archival rag paper with pencil.  The text on the print reads: The Manticore, a mainstay of fantastical bestiaries, has its origins in ancient Persian myth though it first appears in Greek where it was called μαντιχώρας or مارتیاخوار in modern Persian, transliterated as Merthykhuwar or \"man-eater.\" Ctesias of Cnidus, the Greek physician to the Persian king, Antaxerxes II, brought the myth back to Europe where it flourished in the imaginations of Aristotle, Pliny the Elder and, later, Dante. It is a poisonous hunter of the dunes, capable of firing its quills like archers' arrows and eating its prey whole."
