Snake hunting

Just testing a new lino cut, for the very fine French anthology Turkey Comix (as in: the funny-looking bird, not the country). The snake is the two-headed Amphisbeana from the medieval bestiariums. Maybe that is not that obvious. In the Middle Ages you could at least be certain that it had to be the Devil's work. Ah, let them wonder what it is. Anyway, this still needs fixing in places. And I ran out of all blockprint inks, except bright red. Don't like red.
