Gold's archaic alchemical and philosophical associations. As one of the planetary metals, Au was linked to the sun, Apollo, crowns, the lion (due to its own golden crown), and the human head.

Also known as an alchemist's dreamboat.

That looks great Mito. Excellent colours and composition.

Your seaborg entry is neat as well. But the squid should be fighting a phoenix.

I'm going to keep saying it until you do it.

Wah, thanks so much for the comments and votes. I'm glad you guys like the colors. I'm pants at matching things, so it's always gladdening to hear that things worked out all right for once. As for the alchemy theme...there's nothing like a little history and questionable science.

Agreed, the colors are really excellent. I love me some olive green, probably the most underrated color.

Eep. Thanks for all the comments and votes, everyone. I honestly appreciate each and every one of them. I don't know if that makes me strange or what, but..."Fantastic"? Aww, happiness. Either way, this one was very time consuming, so thank you all for validating my hard work.
