Heaven and Hell: The Jaws of Cereberus Picture

The first in a series depicting Heaven and Hell. Despite being an Atheist, I really got an emotional kick out of this project. You don't need to be religious in order to depict Heaven or Hell, nor are you required to incorporate religious iconography.

For me I thought basing the concept of hell around the idea of predation. Humans are fortunate in that we pretty never have to experience the fear of being hunted down and consumed. I wanted to depict hell being a place were one was knocked off the top of the food chain, and is sent falling into the jaws a voracious monster. In this case, Cerberus from Greek Mythology as well as Dante's Inferno. Where he devours all who engaged in the Sin of gluttony.
