It represents the fall of the first angel who rebelled to God. According to many cosmological interpretation this was the condition for the sublunar world(the one we live in,and here embodied by the monster on the top)to develop. The choice of an human-SPIDER hybrid wasn't casual...a hint:Ananke's web...

It's one of the rebellious angels of the apocryphal tradition, so..yes, I guess it can be linked to Satan somehow

Not really. It represents the fall of rebellious angels, and, thus, the creation of the world as we know it. What we call sin and what we call fault are nothing more then the essential conditions for our existence, which is sinful and faulty, since we too, in reflection, are sinful and faulty. What's so wrong with it, I wonder? What are we striving for, if not for death, by aiming at perfection, and sticking to a religion or a moral code of conduct in order to achieve it? The spider-like creature at the top is the representation of the "sublunar world", that is, the Earth.

hehe my bad...anyway,to realize this illustration I've basically used inks,with a touch of charcoal for the shadows. It peeves me but one thing:that on the net my images don't look so sparkling with colours as when you have them right in front of you...

Right,so you want an explanation for this pic...hmmm well,basically it represents the fall of the first angel who rebelled to God.Shemyaza is the jewish name for Satan. The spider-like monster on the top,instead,embodies the so-called sublunar world,the one we live in;subjected to time and death. Hihi you're not the first to ask what I use to make these kind of pictures,but...I'm sorry to turn you down.I've never,ever used any illegal substance.Not even a teeny joint!!!Simply sometimes I go through bad psycological periods...
