...just to call ourselves brave.

Daily Deviation

Given 2010-06-20
The suggester said: "In the face of danger, the strange peace and sadness with which the girl sits, while she is being killed and eaten by the bears create a void of unexplainable emotion within the viewers! Chasing After Death only to show ones braveness is portrayed in truly an amazing way with beautiful muted colours and soft strokes by ~mattahan! A viewer would feel truly at awe and horror at the lengths she had taken to show her bravery to the world that most of the time values bravery for death, sometimes for nothing and often held high for men only. The depth of emotion and gravity with a message in this work that has less of "action" but more of the surreality and sorrow mixed is astonishing! Be sure to definitely check out this deviant's amazing gallery!" - I couldn't agree more :D ( Suggested by phoenixleo and Featured by Norke )
