Pauline Baynes: Alternate Visions
Pauline Baynes is familiar to most people as the illustrator of C. S. Lewis' Narnia Chronicles, and, to a lesser extent, the works of J. R. R. Tolkien. But as a professional artist she produced work for many more books, magazines, and posters. Seeing these often causes a weird sensation for me, like seeing an alternate world that has gone on for years, side by side with the familiar one, but unknown.

That's an awesome illustration of Kali. What's it from?
This is why I would be a flawed scholar: I don't often save or note my sources. It's possibly from her "Arabian Nights:" I think it's a Djinn, and not Kali, but I can't be sure.
I had the same feeling when I heard some of the Beatles songs from "Live at the BBC" and the "Anthology" series. Baynes is great-the artist whose work most closely resembles yours-which you should put on your blog from time to time!
It's from "The Enchanted Horse"(1981)by Rosemary Harris.
Could you tell me where the illustration third from the top is from
I'm sorry; as I noted in my comments I'm a flawed scholar, and since then my computer records suffered a crash and my memory is even worse!
