My depiction of the Underworld… or Hades, Hell, Sheol, the Abyss, the Pit… whatever name you know it as. The more you peruse this photo, the more you will see shapes and figures appear. Look for the faces, because there are many. Are they of the damned? The shrouded Dark Lord whose face and hands are nothing more than skeletal remains, looking on as his minions cast wicked souls into the pit for eternity. Very creepy!
As a spiritual man, I don’t subscribe to the notion of a firey hell, a place of eternal damnation and suffering. It’s simply what I see in this image, and maybe that’s because of previous religious conditioning. To me, God is Love, but I do respect those that hold the belief that there is a hell, in accordance with their own respective faiths. Each to their own, but Peace always.
It never ceases to amaze me what can be seen in inanimate objects, or how we interpret them. I believe this is called Pareidolia, where we descry shapes and figures of things known to us from things that are otherwise random and naturally haphazard. This certainly looks like Hades to me.
