altar in the ice by Vaghauk altar in the ice by Vaghauk
surprise ! another painting inspired in the mysterious Baltic anomaly ... :D [link]

this is also inspired by David Eislerīs awesome (so far untitled) science fiction short story about the anomaly. (David is a member of the Ocean X facebook group )

here a small part of his story :

".... Is that a God? Angar wondered. There were glorious stories of gods descending to the earth giving man knowledge and wisdom. But those stories didn't
quite add up with what he just had been experiencing. If this was indeed a God, what in the name of the elders would a God approach him like that for. It was indeed a bit rude, he thought. -They could at least have let me move out of harms way, before they had there grand moment of entrance.
He's reaction to the whole situation went from curious to upset.
-How could this be glorious, he thought. The gods are only mad and reckless, showing no respect!!

-I'm not impressed!!, he shouted.

The "god" just rested there and didn't seem to pay any attention to what Angar said.... "

This is great youve captured the feel of the ice and the grandness of scale so well, quite hard to do as theres nothing to compare size to.
This reminds of the Thing movie...and i love that film !
