'West' from AlexS: Jester

Each theme is offered Curt a certain intellectual and associative challenge. When I thought about picking up and the miniature for the theme of "the West", then I went through a lot of options. In the end I settled on a miniature a jester.

Why? Because for me, "West" - is Europe, European culture and literature, and in particular, the idea of a medieval carnival and a book that embodies the culture of fun and mixing the high and low - "Gargantua and Pantagruel". So I decided to use the classic the miniature a jester, to show respect to the Western carnival culture. I decided to use some non-standard color scheme, working only with the color red, to bring to the next the miniature image that I associate with Western cultural - Mephistopheles.
