We got both of these from yard sales.
The one on the right we’ve had for a long time, and is a pretty kick-ass alien landscape that is unfortunately in a not-too-well lit part of the house, where it is passed by and under-appreciated.
The new addition is the one on the left, which was was painted by the guy’s dad, Werner Fait (I asked). There were some other pieces that we also liked too, but at a pop this was pushing our limits for art as it is.
I did not even realize it was a phoenix; I just thought it was abstract colors! And we LOVE phoenixes! Especially after watching The Phoenix Saga and The Dark Phoenix Saga from X-Men:TAS (1990s) in college, and then later reading the comics. So it was a big bonus to get home and realize, "Oh! It’s a Phoenix! WIN!!!"
This is a good juxtaposition of fantasy (left) and science fiction (right)!
Phoenix, alien landscape, painting, space.
fantasy. science fiction.
