  1. Further to yesterday's post, just found this amazing cavalcade image. The woman lactating from her five breasts for child and animal alike is superb.

    1. Currently they're just inspiration, Peter, although I have been thinking about my Mer-.(thing?) a bit and trying to figure out the best way to model it. A cart could work.

      For now, though, the Ygg.

  6. Apropos of old dark imagery, went to look at various Dance of Death representations after seeing Mikko's latest Femme Imperum mini at SpikyRatPack, and stumbled upon a few striking images. Thought I'd share.

    Interesting stuff in the backround of this one:

    A sketch rather than a woodcut but a brilliantly grim image:

    Not as creepy per se, but has a really nice devil in it:

    Also stumbled upon this blogpost with woodcuts by Alfred Rethel, 19th century woodcuts with a very Durer-esque sensibility:
