pieta by Krad-Eelav pieta by Krad-Eelav
this was an idea that's been bouncing around ever since I saw *doubleleaf's interpretation of the Pieta; but I wanted to take a more familial bond akin to the actual statue.

And really, the themes of the books seamlessly fit in with this. Aliit ori'shya tal'din. Family is more than blood. With as varied as the cast is, they're all bonded by the fact that they've been accepted among the mando'ade as family, despite their backgrounds. Etain, Vau, Laseema, the clones, even Kal himself...

In another tangent, the clones gave their blood in sacrifice to the Republic, paralleling the original story of the cruxifiction. And likewise, there's pitifully few that mourn them as their loved ones.

...

it sounded better in my head okthx



time: three weeks
programs: painter 11 + photoshop cs5
kal + ordo (c) star wars

Scottish AU for mando? They make armor out of like, metal... and carry uh.. swords. IN SCOTLAND. And instead of painting armor, they paint themselves. Jedi are forest witches. Skirata is a Guy From Someplace Civilized who went to the CRAZY PAGAN BATTLEVERSE of ancient UK. Adopted kids to be his own personal army but ended up loving the shit out of them.
I could go on. But I honestly don't know much ANGLO SAXON HISTORY
