Witch Of Pendle by AndyFairhurst Witch Of Pendle by AndyFairhurst
Happy Halloween ( I know...its' early )

The only reason I make reference to Pendle in the title is because 'Witch' on it's own is a bit boring and I lived in a town called Barnoldswick briefly as a young child which is very close to Pendle Hill where the infamous Pendle Witch Trials took place in the early 17th century, so a very tenuous link there.

Not just a witch... an undead one!

Funny... they executed the innocent ones, but missed this one... the one they were looking for all these years.

That is a seriously cool witch concept! Somebody must make a costume of this, well done!:D
I especially love how she's skeletal/anthropomorphic too and how it effortlessly seems into her cloths!

Thank you Katherine :) Yeah it's a pretty infamous historical event over here amongst other real 'witches' dotted around the country.

Rather like the Salem mess over here. Those ladies' behaviors have been ascribed to a fungusy/moldy grain they were eating, among other clinical issues.

Downright trippy in some instances. Botanical pharmacology marches, or staggers, onward.

:iconandyfairhurst:
AndyFairhurst Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
well apparently the application of certain natural drugs 'applied' via broom handle to a certain 'area' of the body by straddling, induced very trippy episodes and the feeling of flying on them. Whether that's true or not I don't know.

As I've no interest in doing any more personal research on the subject; we can both wonder.
