Djinn Bottle

Artwork details: gouache, 20 x 27 inches (51 x 69 cm), 2002.

Pronounced 'Gin' bottle!

I wanted an image of a friendly-looking - but potentially evil - creature sealed in a bottle: fairy or genie or some such. I suspect, however, that my subconscious raided Terry Pratchett's books for the title of this one, who - if I recall correctly - has a genie build a palace all in one night, and it is ever after known as the 'Djinn Palace'...
