The fucking eyes SUCK... again.
Deities associated with death take many different forms, depending on the specific culture and religion being referenced. Psychopomps, deities of the underworld, and resurrection deities are commonly called death deities in comparative religions texts. The term colloquially refers to deities that either collect or rule over the dead, rather than those deities who determine the time of death.Many have incorporated a god of death into their mythology or religion. As death, along with birth, is among the major parts of human life, these deities may often be one of the most important deities of a religion.
In some religions with a single powerful deity as the source of worship, the death deity is an antagonistic deity against which the primary deity struggles. The related term death worship has most often been used as a derogatory term to accuse certain groups of morally abhorrent practices which set no value on human life, or which seem to glorify death as something positive in itself.Psychopomps (from the Greek word ψυχοπομπός - psuchopompos, literally meaning the "guide of souls") are creatures, spirits, angels, or deities in many religions whose responsibility is to escort newly deceased souls to the afterlife.
Their role is not to judge the deceased, but simply provide safe passage. Frequently depicted on funerary art, psychopomps have been associated at different times and in different cultures with horses, Whip-poor-wills, ravens, dogs, crows, owls, sparrows, cuckoos, and harts.In Jungian psychology, the psychopomp is a mediator between the unconscious and conscious realms.
It is symbolically personified in dreams as a wise man or woman, or sometimes as a helpful animal. In many cultures, the shaman also fulfills the role of the psychopomp. This may include not only accompanying the soul of the dead, but also vice versa: to help at birth, to introduce the newborn child's soul to the world. This also accounts for the contemporary title of "midwife to the dying," which is another form of psychopomp work.
Great body, she even looks hot, I must say.
Love it, love it, love it.
I don't think the eyes suck on this one! They look very open and empty, and they go perfectly with the way the head is tilted!
Her hair does kinda look like she was driving in a convertible in high winds though
Interesting topic too. 'The death deity is an antagonistic deity against which the primary deity struggles' now that sounds like the ultimate battle between light and dark and trying to figure out which is which
Would you mind my asking where you get your information from? Do you pick a particular subject and just hit Google or is there a website you frequent?
Go for it. Ah okay, I didn't think about scientific experiments, which is funny because I've been reading a few of them concerning mythical creature sightings, what they really think it is, and if it is a creature what it really could be. No I'd love to check out your blog! Is that the wordpress link on your profile?
Obviously, but actually, I agree with you whole heartedly. I think there's absolutely no reason to be scared of death. It happens, we all live and we all die, that's not going to change, so why spend your life in fear of it as opposed to living your life to your full potential? And I agree that what comes after death is what most people are afraid of as opposed to actual death itself. I think a lot of it has to do with religion too, what people believe or don't believe.
Oh but I know you adore me, that's why I go there
I'm on there now, there's some great stuff, thanks! That's a shame, maybe you'll be able to get back to it someday!
I agree with absolutely every word you just wrote, especially about time being the real enemy
Oh gosh, I've been like that too but that's just my insomnia getting the best of me, at least I'm getting a lot of art and writing done
It'd be great if you did, but don't push yourself too much! We all need balance between work and rest otherwise we'll lose our shit
Is it weird that this reminds me of the movie 'Mama'?
They eyes don't suck at all. The whole thing is so cool. Well done.
I made your day? glad I could make you feel good.
Ah, well, to each their own. I watched mama for the first time, and I don't mind admitting I've been addicted to it ever since. It's one o' them; it's a marmite film- you either love it or you hate it.
