    Intriguing rendition. The face kind of goes away from the antropomorfic, it seems to me. A curious question, is your rendition related to your own labora/work, aside from art?

      This isn’t how I would visualize Cassiel in ritual so much as it’s playing with some facets of Saturn being related to time. I was sort of going for a look of an aged tree, which actually comes from some incense experience and the way a lot of quality older woods can really play with one’s sense of time and memory. Think grandfather clock or maybe even a treant (fantastical living trees). Unfortunately I’m not sure I pulled it off all that well as viewers are finding it a lot darker than I intended.

        I see. It’s always interesting to see how people interpret what you do, especially when it differs. You learn a lot in the process.
