Seems as if the sunlight is struggling to pierce the bubble of the abyss(testament to good artistry😀). Phenomenal work bud.


We have our analog in King Yama, who watches over the underworld. Many affinities lie within these mythological strands.

I don't know why but I can't help thinking of T.E. Lawrence. " All men dream but not equally". Beautiful balance and contrast. A sort of Yin and Yang effect. Brilliant work.👍
