[Weekly Illustration: The End]

The End. Heavy!
For this weeks illustration I drew inspiration from images of Kali, the Hindu goddess of death. What I found so interesting about these images was the juxtaposition of decoration, suppleness and even serenity with gore and violence. Most of the depictions of Kali show her with multiple arms wielding cleavers and donned with jewelry made of infant pieces. (How metal is that?! I guarantee Mastadon never used that one...) The vintage poster image below was my main reference for this illustration.
