Statues are often idealized works of art. They are ideological, political or religious representations and attempt to turn their subjects into fascinating, eternal figures. Even when erected to keep alive the memory of a single person, a statue that lasts many generations will eventually establish itself as a symbol for the community.
Statues are even more influential when they are monumental. An edifice can be said to be monumental when it is unusual, extraordinary and physically imposing. It has to be abnormal — as exceptional as the political or religious power itself — and also inseparable from its symbolic aspects.
The series “Colosses” is a study of the landscapes that embrace monumental commemorative statues.

Q:Question for Sulla, lol. Does her hair get tangled after flying and what not?
Not as much as you’d think. The material Sulla’s hair is made out of doesn’t get as twisted and knotted as easily as human hair does, and it also has a tensile strength and melting point that’s considerably higher that average human hair. It is, needless to say, a specialty item.
And because you guys have been so sweet the past week, here is a preview of some of my Beyond inks.
A song by reader Galen Borson that’s inspired by O Human Star!!!
I’m taking the week off to recoup from a month of CAFs- in the meantime, enjoy this fantastic guest comic of Eth’s Skin (as told by digletts) made by Blue Delliquanti (of O Human Star). I had to creatively edit out some spoilers- but in the meantime you can also check out my fancomic for O Human Star (also as told by digletts).
