Supreme glory. Hod's presence calls for submission, prostration and unfettered love.

Hod's glory veils even the Sun.  It is said, in some parts, the Sun's rays only shine in the space left behind by Hod's radiance. The Sun existing only in deference and awe. Splendor submits to Hod and beauty fails before Hod. The sky withers and retracts and all that can remain without Hod languishes in mediocrity. Yes, Hod is greatness, but the price of knowing such brilliance is the sundering of one's own 'self'. Why should we bother to know our own visage or to look even at the Sun while we choose to remain so ignorant of what Hod is? It is all darkness by comparison...

-ramblings of a blind stowaway when the Captain asked his identity.

I do love this, beautiful in every manner; is there a wallpaper available? Entirely for personal use, of course. Maybe even a poster purchasable? Would love to~

No doubt this is my favorite. The positioning of hands refers to something more oriental, like Amaterasu. I have no more to say. 're Perfect. I wanted to see this angel on Judgment Day.

"Hod" means a glorious form of respect, but not glory, which is "Tehilla".

But anyway, this is freaking awesome! One hell of a good job :)

The texture on the fabric is stunning, it reminds me of old newspaper that was wet once but is now brittle and dry. The ends have that look of being set on fire and then extinguished to let the embers run where they will.

Cool! All of these angle paintings are superb! Are the ideas of the angles taken from mythologies you've found, or are they completely your own inventions?
