Lucifer by GENZOMAN Lucifer by GENZOMAN
wallpaper version.
PSCS/Bamboo/9 hours or so/music: Most High - Jimmy Page & Robert Plant

[link]

"How art thou fallen from heaven
O day-star, son of the morning! (Helel ben Shahar)
How art thou cast down to the ground,
That didst cast lots over the nations!
And thou saidst in thy heart:
'I will ascend into heaven,
Above the stars of God (El)
Will I exalt my throne;
And I will sit upon the mount of meeting,
In the uttermost parts of the north;
I will ascend above the heights of the clouds;
I will be like the Most High (Elyon).'
Yet thou shalt be brought dow to the nether-world,
To the uttermost parts of the pit."

- Isaiah 14:12-15

----------o----------

Lucifer is a Latin word, literally meaning "light-bearer", that was used as a name for the "day star" or "Morning Star" that precedes the rising of the sun. Venus, the morning star.

A odd fact: Venus is all covered by a solid layer of molten rock, maybe expelled by several volcano eruptions in a old time, on the whole planet surface, as a sea of lava. Like an old real Hell.

that is an interesting odd fact. makes me want to play Dante's Inferno. idk. I love illustrators who are also hard-core gamers. you can see it in their work. I'm not sure if Genzoman ever played it or if the pic is older than the game, but I can feel the influence somewhere

oh, and as always, splendid!

This is Lucifer? :D  Bwuahahahaahaha,don´t let him see this,hilarious.

...And btw the Isaiah word you mentioned in the description isn´t about Lucifer,it is an example for a mighty king who wants to rule like god.

There's a song by Petra called "This means War"  it's about Satan and the war we face with him and his demons. Good song, too!

"Lucifer" isn´t the name of the Fallen One. It is the name of a pagan deity - an important god in roman astrology.

It became associated with the christian concept of "Satan" due to a mistaken interpretation & traduction of a shady text of the Book of Isaiah (Isaiah 14 ; 12 - 15).

Everyone seems to think that Lucifer is some hideous beast when he was actually the most beautiful angel in heaven. I like that you created him kind of dark, he is still very beautiful :)

I made the same connection between Venus and Hell back in my freshmen year of High School, during our astronomy class. Though I never knew that Lucifer was the morning star Venus.

Lucifer was once a pagan diety known as Lucifera, a female nature being that represented nature's duality, then adopted into the Judeo/Christian myths to serve as the antithesis to Jehova. Milton wrote Lucifer in one of the best ways, establishing that he wasn't evil to begin with, but was driven by his thirst for power and hatred later on to become what the western world sees as the imbodiment of evil itself, though granted he really isn't when you realize the worse thing he did was ask Jehova the question "Why?". It was the other demons and fallen beings that committed worse and were later merged together (For example, many believe Beelezebub is the same name as Satan or Lucifer, which is incorrect as Beelezebub is a bastardization of Beelezeb, a pestilence diety depicted as a large fly or maggot and called the lord of flies.)

I guess he was a Querubim... which was 1 hierarchy down the seraphims, the six winged ones. Actually Querubins where most like a mix of angel and beast, which would explain Lucifers "modern" red goat design...

He was an ancient Ammonite God that was worshipped by the Canaanites, Phoenician, and related cultures in North Africa and the Levant. As a god worshipped by the Phoenicians and Canaanites, Moloch had associations with a particular kind of propitiatory child sacrifice by parents. Glad to know that someone wants to know the truth.

He is representing the sin Pride. He tried to be more than god, and was cast out for his trouble.
He wants to rule heaven, but because Pride is a sin that is almost impossible to overcome. Given the way he represent that won't happen.

I think this is an awesome piece of art. I applaud you good sir.
