Everything about this. The fact that the figures are female-presenting. The fact that Nature’s dress has a train that pools on the ground. That Nature is wearing a mask. That Humanity is wearing something so simple. That Humanity is only able to stand because she is supported by Nature. The grain in Humanity’s hair.

Glad this is on DeviantArt. I love the way Humanity’s feet are limp and slightly curled; visually, it’s beautiful, but it also shows that she’s not even standing on her own.
holy shit. this is amazing.
Oh my heart.
Just found this in my archive and remembered how beautiful it is, I didn’t think that people could actually paint like this any more. Amazing.
Not to mention the blood on Humanity’s hands…
