John Milton June: As stars to thee appear


Andre de Dienes.

A broad and ample road, whose dust is gold,
And pavement stars, —- as stars to thee appear
Seen in the galaxy, that Milky Way
Which nightly as a circling zone thou seest
Powder’d with stars.

(John Milton. Paradise Lost. Book VII, 577-581.)

    This looks like Andre de Dienes flavored his image with a touch of the sci-fi pulp artist Virgil Finlay! Great pic.
