06_Ilha_em_formadecrocodilo

Ilustração criada como habitualmente em aguarela e desta vez o objectivo foi o de ilustrar um conto que aborda a origem de Timor. Reza a lenda que um dia depois de muitas atribulações um jovem e um crocodilo fazem-se ao mar e exploram juntos o oceano até que o crocodilo decide fixar-se num determinado local  e transforma-se na ilha de Timor.
Isto para resumir toda a história pois segundo os habitantes a sua ilha tem a forma de um crocodilo e encontram nessa lenda a explicação para tal facto.

Another illustration created in watercolors. This one was made to illustrate a short story about the origins of the island of Timor. According to legend, one day a kid and a crocodile set out to explore the ocean togheter and after many adventures at sea came a time when the crocodile decided to stay forever in one area and then he changed into an island wich became Timor.
This is the short version of the tale of course, but it has to do with the fact that according to the Timor people their island has the shape of a crocodile and this legend is the explanation for that fact.
