The Hand of Doom

Category : ,

Date : 2017

It is so interesting to observe the esoteric posters of hand reading or magical shows. There are like a common aesthetic that links all of them, somehow like an aura.
This design is inspired in these posters.

The hand of Doom tries to create a bond between chiromancy and spiritual sessions and at the same time envolves them in our very loved alchemy “bubble”.

At the sides of the design there are opposites, Sun-Moon; Material-Spiritual, Rational-Emotional.
These opposites allow the formation of a complex, yet perfect, circle and an ascendent/descendent triangle.
And that is how we all are, right?
