Chimeras are statues that one can find on churches and cathedrals as hybrid monsters with attributes of lions, dragons, snakes, bulls of different animals. In spite of their really creepy aspects these monsters have an important roll in the architecture and religion: to guard and preserve the buildings from bad spirits and evils.
Chimeras are shadows of the Reality and therefore this composition uses the idea of “taking over” and repeating of a motif with changing of the “colors” and altering of the positions in the space.
