Welcome to our world of art.
Inspiration came from the book "The Living Dead" by Marco Lanza which features his photographs from the Palermo Crypt in Italy. I found that the interred that were lining the walls of the crypt either looked to be at peace with their fate or showed the expressions of terror from their wrappings which acted as bindings and the wires that secured them to the walls. In this painting the interred looks resigned to his fate not struggling with his wrappings and the plackard placed around his neck tells he moved onward leaving natures debt for life.
