The Boatman by ApathyHouseArt The Boatman by ApathyHouseArt
Spooky boatman, come to take you to your final resting place! Distance-based charges apply.

Came up with this a few days ago while taking a shower; a boatman (based off Charon of Ancient Greek Mythology fame) that carts the souls of the dead to their final resting place. The boat and oar symbolism is obvious, but the crotch-based pot it has represents the tradition of burnt offerings that people have offered as funerary gifts to the deceased, and even long after the passing of their ancestors.

The starry night-sky look in its shadows has nothing to do with the release of MTG's Journey into Nyx at all. Honest!
