Well, nice assortment of figures you’ve got here, very well done.
Although, if you think about it, the title ’Death Gods’ doesn’t really apply to any of them.
I’ll admit I don’t know anything about Morrigan, but I do know that Thanatos was the Greek god of death while Hades ruled the underworld.
Likewise, Anubis was the god of mummification; Osiris was Egypt’s death god.
Hel was the offspring of two giants - meaning she was not a god at all.
Lastly, the grim reaper doesn’t really count as a god so much as a personification of death.
But, ranting aside, it’s still a good picture. Anastasia Heublein
replies: "Yeah, I know it’s not technically correct. I just chose mainstream figures because they would be more recognizable to my classmates and my teacher. I needed figures they could easily recognize and associate with a common theme. Most of them didn’t even know about Hel or the Morrigan, for instance. They probably wouldn’t have known much about Osiris, and even less about Thanatos, or any of the more ’obscure’ gods and goddesses.
Besides, most people consider these figures to be gods and goddesses associated with death. Hel dwells in the underworld (hence the word "Hell" ), the Morrigan has valkyrie-like qualities and is associated with dead warriors and battlefields, Anubis was a god of death but was later replaced as the Egyptian pantheon evolved, Hades is technically the name of the underworld but it refers to him as well since to mention his real name was considered unlucky and therefore never mentioned, and some say the Grim Reaper was inspired by the sight of mysterious figures in the fields outside villages that would soon after be struck with the Plague. Really, it depends on who you ask, or what you read, or what you watch. My sources are probably different from other people’s. Still, gods or not, they have symbolic power.
Thank you though. I might try taking another shot at something like this, but use the more technically correct figures. ^__^"
