"The Descension" by illustrator/concept artist Nicholas Keller. An image from a dream, and inspiring those strange dream-like feelings in which one realises a sense of the unknown. Those ruined crags and spires, monolithic in their immensity, instil a sense of sorrow for decaying grandeur, while the monstrous shape that dwarfs them is nightmarish and unknowable, terrible in its power and the sense of threat that it conveys. Yet within all there is a strange beauty, like looking at an avalanche or a glacier that, while it may threaten the mountain village is still a powerful and tremendous force, beautiful in its might.
