The God and the Goddess
Digital art – January 2011
I decided to continue with the deity theme today and showcase an older piece on the God and the Goddess. These two are older gods in our world in Cultura worshiped by the Vidh, or what some might think of as Forest Elves. The Vidh are the eldest of the elven races and thought to be the ones from whom the others came. They call these two deities She who Destroys and He who Creates.
Being the penultimate deities of their people, She and He have been ascribed by the Vidh to the control of base phenomenon of nature.They work together to keep nature in balance. She being responsible for destructive forces such as wild fires, severe storms, and earthquakes, feeding off the life He provides, and He works to rebalance life in her wake. Shown are the humanoid visual representations but she is known for actually taking the forms of the destructive forces she manifests, He is said to take the shape of whatever life he wishes, though most popularly thought to show himself as a larger than life animal, such but typically is represented as a stag, bear, or fish.
