Artist's Description

Immortality (or eternal life) is the concept of living in a physical or spiritual form for an infinite length of time. What form an unending or indefinitely-long human life would take, or whether the soul possesses immortality, has been the subject of much speculation, fantasy, and debate.
Since immortality is seen as a desire of humanity, themes involving immortality often explore the disadvantages as well as the advantages of such a trait. Sometimes immortality is used as a punishment, or a curse that might be intended to teach a lesson.
In some parts of popular culture, immortality is not all that it is made out to be, possibly causing insanity and/or significant emotional pain. Much of the time, these things only happen to mortals who gain immortality. Beings born with immortality (such as deities, demigods and races with “limited immortality”) are usually quite adjusted to their long lives, though some may feel sorrow at the passing of mortal friends, but they still continue on…
