2 Nephi 28:23

Yea, they are grasped with death, and hell; and death, and hell, and the devil, and all that have been seized therewith must stand before the throne of God, and be judged according to their works, from whence they must go into the place prepared for them, even a lake of fire and brimstone, which is endless torment.

If a hell like this truly exists, I don’t expect that many people will go there. I believe the Lord is so merciful that he will give each of us more than we deserve. Because of this view, I felt comfortable making a parody of the versions of hell that I have seen painted on frescoes in Italy. The looks on these characters’ faces are inspired by the unfortunate children that populate the drawings of Edward Gorey. The figure rowing the boat is the Charon, keeper of the way to the underworld in Greek mythology. He was said to row the dead across the river Styx to reach to their permanent home below.

The original is a handmade etching. It was created at the Lower East Side Print Shop. The plate was created by etching the lines into a copper plate. The plate was then soaked in an acid bath, inked by hand, and run through a printing press to create a this one of a kind image. Each image varies slightly. Printed on Rives BFK 280 gsm. Paper size is 14x11". 

This image was made in an edition of 8. Available to you are numbers 7 and 8 as well as my only artist's proof from my personal collection. *Note: an artist's proof has the same or greater value than the prints in an edition. When the prints in the edition are sold out, the value of the proof increases above the value of the print in the edition because of scarcity. The proof may vary slightly from the edition in that it was made in most cases before the items in the edition were finalized and is part of the artist’s personal collection. The proof may show some of the artist's process with varying paper, inking, or otherwise re-working of the plate.

Comes to you beautifully wrapped!
