Is this person traveling through another dimension? That’s certainly what comes to mind at first look. It’s an interesting, intricate, and very detailed design of a whimsical, steampunk-ish person in its travel clothes and walking stick. This image prompts a mysterious and curious feeling. Where or when is it going?
