Nasa-salar - Promo by PureBlackLove Nasa-salar - Promo by PureBlackLove
EN: In the zoroastrian tradition, Nāsā-sālars are the caretakers of the dead (aka the caretakers of potential pollutants). They are the only ones that can touch corpses and place them into the Dakhmas (in english, Towers of Silence), circular raised structures used for exposure of the dead, particularly to scavenging birds.

ITA: Nella cultura Zoroastriana, i Nāsā-sālar sono coloro che si occupano dei morti (anche conosciuti come "coloro che si prendono cura di ciņ che č impuro"). Sono gli unici a poter toccare i cadaveri e a poterli trasportare dentro le Dakhma (o Torri del Silenzio), strutture circolari sopra-elevate usate per disporre i cadaveri e lasciarli in balia degli elementi naturali o di uccelli, quali gli avvoltoi, che si nutrono di carcasse.

:iconratravarman:
This is one of those mythological creatures the way that someone like Clive Barker would (re)imagine it! A modern take on something quite obscure to most Westerners but quite common in areas of the Middle East and India. This personification of decay and the ravages of the elements is bold and underscored by the appropriate trinity of white, black, and red. The gloves recall the cruel talons of demonic creatures that are a staple of Indian art since the early Moghal era. The strap recalls the Cenobites of Barker's mythology and ties both together in a stream of dark myth that resonates even today. My only quibble, as it is with most of your creations, is that you never go beyond portraiture. It is my sincere hope that someday you will do a full figure rendition of one of your creations!

Wow, fantastic work again! I think I've said it before, but I love the designs you come up with using just white, black and red.

Also, did you shave your head? Just curious. It looks good on you!
