Inspired my a movie I saw a very long time ago. "Titus" with Anthony Hopkins "Victorius Roman general Titus (Hopkins) has just defeated the Goths and has captured Tamora, the Goth Queen and her sons, one of whom Titus promptly sacrifices to appease the gods. Decadent Emperor Saturninus claims Tamora for his queen; her daughter Lavinia suffers a fate worse than death; Tamora wants revenge; Titus wants revenge.
If you think revenge is sweet - taste this . . ."
Lavinia hands were chopped off and she was left standing on a stump with sticks shoved into her wrists and tied very tightly with string to keep them in there.
Happy Halloween/Samhain Everyone!
This starts the Celtic New Year - may it be a productive one for us all!

What a ghastly story and graphic depiction, it's just perfect for the season! I bet she's really popular on Arbor Day, as well! LOL! This certainly is a little more racier than Charlie Brown's tale of the Great Pumpkin! Why can't we all just get along?! LOL!! Outstanding and very gruesome image! Happy Halloween!!

Ah, now this is an ass smacking piece of work, and I, as a follower of Celtic traditions, am able to understand the whole story behind this image. Beautifully worked and the atmosphere is spot on! May Samhain bring you good fortunes and may your every desire be fulfilled!
