I'm pretty sure I don't fully appreciate the significance of all the details here, but it's a very striking illustration nonetheless. I especially like the use of Baroque decorative elements in the background.

Just the background must have taken so much time. That attention to detail in the carvings is amazing. I like how the knife catches the light.

i love it!!  kind of an art nouveau feel... ?  
my eye immediately jumped to the constellation and it made me really want to know what it was!!  thanks for the link !  one really interesting line this made me think of was "the altar constellation was sometimes depicted as surrounded by demons."

Is it bad that I like the background more than the foreground? Awesome piece overall, has a gothic feel to it.

Wow, this is beautiful! Wow, this is beautiful! I love the... I don't know the term for it, but the monstrance-like object in the background? And the way it backlights him just a little bit. The fella himself looks fascinating; I'm curious about his body markings (tattoos? holy marks? wards/spells/curses?) and what he's going to do with that blade. I love the look on his face, so steely and firm but also a little resigned. Beautiful. I'd love to see this guy again!
