Horror Victorianorum

The meaning of "Horror Victorianorum" (terror of the Victorian) according to Wikipedia is is a term devised by the philosopher David Stove to refer to irrational distaste for, or condemnation of, Victorian culture, art and design. This piece is sort of a commentary of a fanciful Victorian imperialistic space mission to civilize the 'natives'. However, the Victorian gentleman has lost his nerve when he encounters a tribal-marked demon of the deep.

This was also the piece I used for our postcard image.
