Artist's Description

As Once Beheld by Dieter Carlton a poem for which he wrote as follows: So crystal clear the waters there And life abundant everywhere The smell is rich of evergreens So fresh the air not real it seems The grass as soft as woven silk And clouds so full and white as milk And o'er this great and pristine land Indeed the eagle's eyes command For this is where not long we dwelled A kingdom gone AS ONCE BEHELD This work was produced using Maya, DAZ Studio and Bryce. It is not a photograph, there are no photographs embedded within the image nor were any photographs used in creating it.

It is an original work created exclusively in a virtual space on a personal computer (like forming a clay sculpture or building a studio set in one's backyard or garage). Each such work takes 30 to 50 hours to complete.
