Devil

Description

The Devil contains a demon-like version of my face with snake’s scales and eyes overlooking a glowing rose with a spider crawling on it. Below this crouches another version of me, naked and vulnerable. The whole lot is encased with a tangled spider’s web.

Symbolism

The symbols I used are similar to those in the RW design but in a slightly different way. It is important to the design that the demon is the same person as the crouched person. To me, the Devil is not an external force but an aspect of ourselves, for good or bad. The rose represents passion in the extreme. If we go too far with passions they can lead to obsession and addiction. The spider represents this hidden aspect and the tangled web is the idea of being trapped before you really know it.

Card Meaning

If this Devil was to appear in a reading for you, you may need to live a little. Allow yourself to enjoy the excesses of life and live for the moment. However, you may be doing this too much and are becoming a slave to excess and that lifestyle. You need to be in control some of the time and ensure that you do it all safely. Letting your inner demon rise above you can be dangerous so acknowledge it and work with it, don’t be a slave to it.

Artistic Media

I used my digital camera and PhotoShop to put all these images together. All the photos used were taken by me, in and around my home.

Artist's Bio

I am the happiest I have been in my entire life. I recently gave up my first ‘career’ after only three years and am back at College perusing the dream job. I am studying Graphic Design and right now, and love it. Can’t wait to find out what tomorrow may bring!
