no hope, no salvation

acrylic on newsprint
non-numbered edition of 30 (+/-)

clearly the devil image at the top of the print isn't mine.  but was taken from a book of wood cuts and engravings given to me by my long deceased artist uncle.  i'm sure there are any number of books featuring 17th century block prints.  but the one that this was taken from and that i've been carrying for pushing 20 years was published in 1957.  i won't give the title here because, as they say, you're only as obscure as your reference.
