The Guf 2 is the second of two paintings in a two part series. It was painted for Necropolis: The Dark Arts Group Show at Congregation Gallery (now defunct) in California.
If The Guf 1 was all about the beginning of the human race, The Guf 2 is all about the end. Based on the concept of the destruction of humankind when the Guf (Hall of Souls) in heaven is empty, this painting depicts a withered and broken Soul Carrier with no soul left to impart. A city burns in the background and in the sky on the left, the gates to heaven are open. The symbol drawn in the dirt is Tav, the last letter in the Hebrew alphabet. It is the counterpart to Aleph, the first letter in the Hebrew alphabet found in The Guf 1.
The Guf 2 is acrylic painted on canvas, 12" x 9" on a double thick canvas stretcher and comes wired and ready to hang.
