Elderly Tortoise (illustrated by Max Rugers)

In the eighth chapter of The Kindly Ones, Dream spends his days dealing with his day to day duties.

On Moonday, he helped settle an argument between the Knight Of Clouds and the Body Politic, spent time with a small boy from Hong King, ate dinner in the dream of the head chef at a hotel in Sri Lanka, guided the dreams of a young girl in South Africa, helped resolve an issue between the various tribal gods and gave a dream to an elderly tortoise.

He gave the tortoise, who lived alone on her island for more than two centuries, a dream of her love, who was killed by some sailors.

The Elderly Tortoise appears in Sandman # 64, page 2, panel 6.

Max did a fantastic job with this portrait. I really like the realistic details he put into this portrait. This is a truly wonderful portrait!!!
