This work is one of the illustrations for Glory of Life by Llewellyn Powys, published by the Golden Cockerel Press in 1934. The book was completed after Gibbings had left the Golden Cockerel Press. The work shows him at his best: his flair for commanding a page not yet betrayed by careless drawing.
The depiction of shapes and forms on a flat surface chiefly by means of lines although colour and shading may also be included. Materials most commonly used are pencil, ink, crayon, charcoal, chalk and pastel, although other materials, including paint, can be used in combination.
