Water Rites by ZacharyMadere Water Rites by ZacharyMadere
An illustration from Frank Herbert's Dune.

He looked at the pool. "We have more than thirty-eight million decaliters here," he said. "Walled off from the little makers, hidden and preserved."

"A treasure trove," she said.

Stilgar lifted the globe to look into her eyes. "It is greater than treasure. We have thousands of such caches. Only a few of us know them all." He cocked his head to one side. The globe cast a yellow-shadowed glow across face and beard. "Hear that?"

They listened.

The dripping of water precipitated from the windtrap filled the room with its presence. Jessica saw that the entire troop was caught up in a rapture of listening. Only Paul seemed to stand remote from it.

To Paul, the sound was like moments ticking away. He could feel time flowing through him, the instants never to be recaptured. He sensed a need for decision, but felt powerless to move.


Herbert, Frank. Dune. 1965.

Uncommon painting for Dune. Far from the sand and fighting, close to the original Ecological dream of the Fremen. Excellent inspiration !

Thanks! That was kind of my intent; as romantic as worm riding and the war with the sardaukar are, the book didnt actually have too much of that! Or at least it was the least interesting part to me. Thanks for the comment, I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Thank you very much! I'm glad you like my work. It's going to get a lot better, too; I was just (well, in Sept) accepted to a video game development college course, which includes formal 3DS Max training.
