| Special theme request/ Piasa Bird theme [message #159586]

I don't think you are being challenged enough so here is something with a little more bite to it.
The image below is of the Piasa bird, which is or was an ancient Indian pictograph painted on the bluffs overlooking the Mississippi river near where I live.
Legend has it that this was a fierce man eater which gorged itself on deer, buffalo and slow moving Indians at will until a great chief sacrificed himself to lure the monster into the range of his warrior's arrows.
The Chief and this fearsome monster died in a hail of the warrior's arrows and plunged into the depths of the Mississippi river never to be seen or heard of again.
Your challenge, if you choose to accept it is to create a really great theme or themes based upon this legend and the colors used in the painting.
The Piasa and its legend are what I used as the theme for my 1st and primary Forum Piasa info, and I am slowly working towards resurrecting it.
Think you can do it, without getting bit?
There are a lot of greens, reds, browns, and black in the image (basically earth colors), and if you want I have some other images but this is probably the best.
Some time back I was trying to use the image (a larger one) as the actual background of the forum with just a few forums superimposed over it. I know that can be done and I will be trying it again.
