Two horned divs (demons) with big teeth sprinkle a storm on a pair of lovers and their crew as their boat makes its way along a silver river (tarnished black over time). Divs are well known characters from Persian mythology. Those in this painting appear either from behind a riverbank or from the sky. The uncertainty of their position is unsettling: at least one crewman covers his eyes in response to the oncoming storm created by the beasts.

'Dervishes' by the Russian painter Vasili Vereshagin reminds me of my new story project 'The Three Princes of Serendip'. Thx to Karin Vlietstra.
