Opium Hallucination

Opium Hallucination, originally uploaded by stevechasmar.

From the flickr page: "This old illustration was captioned "The Opium Smoker's Dream", and includes some rather bizarre imagery including bats and a dragon. Both creatures are found in Chinese iconography and symbolize happiness and strength respectively, but these renditions are decidedly Western and remind me of Halloween more than anything else. Thanks to Nick Bornoff for finding this for me."
