And now for something completely different. From the last one.

I guess you remember the story of the little Indian girl born with four legs and four arms, being the surviving one of a pair of ischiopagus conjoined twins. In her village she was believed to be an incarnation of Shiva, I think, and worshiped. Her story hit the news in 2007.

So that's what partly inspired this one.
The other thing was this utterly fascinating photo I came across: [link] . Originally I wanted to draw something very different from what you see, so I guess I'll exploit the cephalothoracopagus (I actually typed that) conjoined twins theme more :) .
Many things in this could have been better, but still, I hope you like :)

Fancy alchemical brushes by :iconfaelivrinen-stock: and :iconflutterstock: and I hope I haven't forgotten to credit anyone else. If so, let me know.

Holy mother of amazing! If I weren't easily scared in the middle of the night, I'd ask you to come and paint a mural of this on my bedroom wall.

This is fantastic! The details are exquisite and the composition is pretty much flawless.

Нямам идея. Надали.
Иначе доколкото разбрах е родено през 1851г. Скелетът се намира в Mütter Museum във Филаделфия.
