Dreamlands Tarot - 'Death' - The Ghoul Pickman

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

"There, on a tombstone of 1768 stolen from the Granary Burying Grund in Boston, sat a ghoul which was once the artist Richard Upton Pickman." -HP Lovecraft, from "The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath".The Ghoul Richard Upton Pickman serves as the archetype of Death in my Dreamlands arcana. Besides the immediate link between ghouls and the cemetaries they frequent, there is the transformation aspect which futher enforces the concept, despite Pickman saving Carter from almost certain death in HP Lovecraft's "The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath".
