Dark surreal illustration in strangely fascinating Victorian sideshow style. Sad Lolita with big shiny eyes and sharp horns....
….At the age of 14, after unusually bad dream, Cornelie felt of her bed and got a few painful bumps on the head. Horns started to grow in a week time.. they surfaced like a tooth, painfully.. For a month she wore big fur hat, and because it was winter and the heating broke in the house, nobody was surprised. Cornelie never told anyone that it was her who broke it......
read the whole story here:
'Human Horn' is an unexplained medical condition when human can grow horns.
In Mütter Museum you can see a wax model of a woman with a horn growing out of her forehead..she had it for couple of years and probably was financially benefiting from this unusual ornament
This is a digital painting... thousands of brush strokes.... days of work. The tiniest thing is invented and painted by me.. as I imagined it.
