You wish to escape him by running away from time. You wish fate will never catch you. But time flees and you will never know your future. As you open your eyes again after a sweet short journey in a land called dream, he may be standing before you, looking at you with a cold smile. And then you unlucky person will be dragged down into your grave. Forever sleeping a dreamless dream, forever being gone.
So it's Easter and what am I contributing to DA? A surrealistic piece about death, of course!
I am not religious and yeah, I don't really give a f*** about christian celebrastions. But this pic can also relate to this day though, if you want. It's about life and death (especially death) and that suits to a celebration which originally was even heathen origin and meant to celebrate the return of spring, the season of new life and fertility. But there can only be new life when old beings and organisms die. (common sense!)
I also intended to make this slightly eroguro-influenced for the sake of creating that strange link between light fear and beauty (combined with the macabre). Death is something really diverse. It can be beautiful (yeah, it can), it can make you afraid too. But it also may be a nightmare fuel. It depends on the way how someone or something had to leave this world.
Notice how the bodiless undead head feeds the growing (fantasy) flower. That's the scary but necassary bound between the dead and living. Everything else is up to ypur interpretation because I think the great thing about art is that everyone will see something different dependent on their world views, thoughts, experiences, etc.
