Japan Quake Appeal Auction: Jigoku (Hell) - CLOSED

Sometime ago, my husband loved to make his interpretation of Sidra's drawings. Sidra was only 5 years old at the time. As Sidra grew older, his drawings get more complicated and now my husband were inspired again to make an interpretation.

This is something that Sidra drew, the title is 'Jigoku' , it means 'hell'. I'm not really sure why Sidra picked this theme for his drawing. There are lots of scary monsters in the drawing, you can also see that the big hell monster has a person between its teeth. More detail shots in this post.

Jigoku (Hell)
Jigoku (Hell) by Sidra Putra. colored pencils and watercolor. 38x54 cm (15x21.2 in)

Jigoku (Hell) by Mamad Purbo. watercolor and ink. 21x23 cm (8.2x9 in)
This is my husband's version. When he finished drawing it, my husband felt that the picture has some kind of dark energy. Maybe it is his feeling of everything that has happened since the quake last week, his anxiety, fear, and worries.

Sidra and my husband are putting their drawings together for auction in cooperation with A Bit of This and a Bit of That.

I will send it anywhere in the world in protective plastic sleeve rolled in a cardboard tube.
