The Modern Prometheus

Acrylic, ink, color pencil
Based on Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

A symbolic representation of the final climatic confrontation for Victor Frankenstein and his monstrous creation on the ice flows of the North Pole. Imagery inspired by the medieval alchemy that was the key to Victor's occult workings and medieval Christian angel symbolism internalized by the monster's identification with Lucifer from Paradise Lost.
