Amazing.  But I need more - what's going on here exactly?  Is the woman some martyr who killed the basilisk?  Or is SHE the basilisk?  And why the candles and offerings?

looks like she's being attacked by the basilisk.  Her right hand is holding the basilisk's head and the basilisk is coiling around her.
