“Mictecacihuati, Goddess of the Dead”

Inspiration & Technique

Acrylic underpainting, then painted using oils in thin glazes. Next, I applied variegated gold gilding to her headdress and gold liquid to her hair.

Inspired by the Aztec Goddess of the Dead. She escorts the dead to their proper dimensions and watches over them during their journey.
