The Doves Wasteland

This is the last picture found in The Thrill of the Chase

Everyone seems to have a different opinion when it comes to the art work. I myself, believe every picture and it’s placement in the book to be a hint at something. This one with the dove, to me, seems to be one of the most important parts of the book, as I believe it hints to the end of the chase and the final resting place of the chest. I have constantly thought about this picture from the very first time I read TTotC. You have to admit, the dove nesting on the moon over a wasteland of  tree stumps is not something you see every day. I have created my own version of the picture to try to get a more real to life essence of what we’re actually looking at and I am curious to hear your thoughts on the matter.

    I have a few (scant) more – lol
