It is favorite Kipling's poem! Though I read by it translated, it the impresses. Very interesting design and interpretation this poem. I'm admired!

That's one of my favorite poems, and I love the way you imaged it!
Compasses and clocks go perfectly with the era and with the message, and give it a really good feeling.
Are those water colors?
Just, gorgeous work... =)

Thank you so much. It pains me that these sort of quieter pieces go unnoticed:-) I too love the poem. This was actually a commission. It was done with gouache and calligraphic ink. The clocks and compasses: yes because of the era, but also in terms of meaning: the poem is about finding direction, your place in life, finding your North so to speak.
