Artwork Description

A 'Deus Ex Machina' (literally "god out of a machine") is an improbable contrivance in a story. The phrase describes an artificial, or improbable, character, device, or event introduced suddenly in a work of fiction or drama to resolve a situation or untangle a plot.
Antithesis to the more commonly known Deus Ex Machina, Diaboli Ex Machina ("devil out of a machine") represents an improbable dissolution instead of a resolution, an unanticipated unraveling of both thought and form.

Thanks for the kind comments! More on the way, but the stringent submission criteria here has prompted me to adjust many of my images until I feel they are 'up to par'.

Once again very original, colorful and just plain good! Great details.

Glad you enjoyed it. Started with just the face, but it kept growing. I think perhaps it is a metaphor for the sense of helplessness we often feel in the midst of our technological society.

great work. I love all the details in it, and how you have made it look like a machine, but still alive.

Art at its best.
