"Vulturine Plague Doctor" Original Colored Pencil Illustration
As with every career, one must always dress for success. The raven is the classic inspiration for the plague doctor, but not being ones to beat around the bush, this sect has taken to emulating the vulture instead. The vulture is far quicker at the duty of preparing a body, and when the patients start increasing, time becomes a luxury of which there is far too little.
This is a one-of-a-kind original colored pencil illustration on vellum. It is framed in a vintage-esqe frame, backed with soft crushed velvet, and ready to adorn your walls. Frame measures 4.5" x 5.25", area within the glass measures 2.25" x 3.25". A little treat for your gallery wall and eyes alike.
The matching framed illustration, "Hornbilled Plague Doctor", can also be found in my shop to complete the pair.
