A fantastic interpretation of a scene from a Shakespeare play - a very large ass-headed man is surrounded by all manner of human life - beautiful nude young women - suspended female spirits - dwarfs and other little people - an old crone - on and on - a coiled green snake in the water at center foreground. (Jim Hahn 01/11/95)
