    Amazing piece, Pica! Love the calligraphy and colours, and it’s quite large – wish I could see it in real life.

    Wow. And I love the looming figure. Death in his cowl, sure, but unhacknifyed.

    (Hey, it’s the end of the world, I can make up words if I want to!)

    Beautiful use of text and the colors are incredible.

    Holy wow. Even better at larger size.

    I also wish I could see it in person!

    The words written across “Death” are a nice gracenote.

    I wish I could see it at full size. It’s powerful even here. The horse is a horse of the apocalypse? But it also looks like a cave painting to me — ss though the words were layers of history on the wall of the cave. A great interpretation of the theme.

    So complexly, incisively beautiful. Speaking softly but relentlessly to so many feelings and associations. Powerful and wonderful.

    Beautifully and frighteningly evocative!

    A really beautiful object about unspeakable ugliness.
    Some kind of strange metamorphosis. The spirit of it not unlike the beautiful-ugly Indian goddess of destruction, Kali.

    Thank you very much, everyone. Despite the subject matter, this was fun to do.

    Dale — the figure in his cowl was a total accident. I love those.

    R — I’m glad you like the words across Death — I wasn’t sure about it. It was the last thing I did, not sure till the end, but pleased with the result.

    Nancy — yes, it was Death’s pale horse, but the whole thing did feel like a cave painting/graffitoed wall.

    Now my question is what to do with the thing…
