Well today's Diwali. Greetings to all. We Bengalis have this tradition of making 'alpanas' or colourless rangolis. Usually its the same old Lakshmi feet and some other generic stuff. THIS time, I decided to make one as well. THIS^ is what I came up with. A tribute to one of the few TRUE gods on Earth. Comments are necessary.

Awe-fuckin'-some man!!!!
I've known people in the metal circuit for some time now, and I could swear on ANYTHING I have NEVER come across such devotion!!!
Seriously, you and Alok could compete to decide who is more fanatic about Opeth.

:leaves with eyes popping out of face:

Alok said...

*Bows down*

Even though that was your job, could that be a dedication to Opeth from me too? :D

You know, the very reason I fell in Love at first sight with the Opeth logo is because the artwork within the "O" matches so much with the Awesome freehand style with which my Mummy draws Rangoli.

The level of sophistication in the intricacy of my Mom's work is even greater than that in Opeth's logo. :)

True Art shall always remain alive.

Whoa! You could give all the old Bong matrons a run for their money!

Very, very well made!

@ Ki:Thank you,life support.

@Jadis: Well I finally found a way to elevate metal bands to 'god' status oficially ;-) Thanks a lot though.

@Alok: Yeah sure man.Anyone belonging to the metal 'gotra' is allowed to share this offering.And yeah,that 'O' took a long time to make man.Its FUCKING intricate.A true work of art.Thanks a lot.

@Lucid Darkness:Hmmm,well I doubt I'd WANT to give Bong matrons a run for their money considering they have absolutely ZERO connection to metal (barring spawning some metalheads).But thanks a lot.
