Leviathan - Original


Inspired by Moby-Dick and the Medieval “hellmouth” motif, a common visual representation of Leviathan, a monstrous beast who will purportedly emerge from the depths and swallow the damned during the Last Judgment.

In modern parlance, “leviathan” is simply used to denote a great whale or other sea creature, and this piece envisions the Pequod, doomed by Ahab’s madness and reckless pursuit of vengeance, sailing into the jaws of Leviathan upon the great whale’s back.
