Indeed the "recemblence of a stiffend corpse" No wonder why Prince Prospero died such a sudden haha.

This is an excellent image. I am working on an essay and I would appreciate if I could use this image as a back round for my title page.

this image is absolutely amazing! I was wondering if I could get your permission to use this in one slide of a powerpoint I am working on for Edgar Allen Poe. It is for my instructional technology class and will not be posted on the web or used for any profit.

Thank you. I really wanted to have the piece have a dream like quality to it. For the most part, the images start as a basic idea and then end up evovling through the creative process. There are a few that are based on dreams though.

Realistic colorations, firm lines, and yet soft in all of its contures A wonderful exaplin of morbid affairs, or nightmareic possibilities in art form.

Do you dream of these things, or simply see them?

Striking image David! I've just played Resident evil 4 so much that this really inspires me! Creepy, interesting and a cool concept.

Art at its best.
