Yhtac B4.47 
1994 Calendar
In Patagonian mythology, Yhtac was a mermaid who was considered to be the most beautiful and elusive of all creatures. Her tail was made of gold and her skin was of pearl. A powerful sorcerer, Arasmin, created two flying beasts to carry his castle around the world until they could find her. The beasts were created with only one wing apiece so they could not fly alone. Once Arasmin found Yhtac, he presented each of the beasts with a second wing and set them free. Arasmin then transformed himself into a sea creature so that he could join the lovely Yhtac. 
Painted for a calendar, I assume the 1994 one.  The model is identified as Cathy (and Yhtac backwards is ...?), an artist whom Boris encourages.  I presume this to be Cathleen Thole, whose work is excellent and whom I have seen identified elsewhere as a protegé of Boris.
