This stirring charger evokes a torrid dreamscape where the underworld of the imagination collides with land, sea, and sky. A lurid green backdrop is blended into a swath of midnight blue, shredded to reveal hellfire beneath. The juxtaposition of colors and formal elements is at once jarring and whimsical, peaceful and alarming.
