The Wounded Angel (1903) by symbolist painter Hugo Simberg (1873-1917). Almost identical work was painted as a fresco to the Tampere Cathedral, which Simberg decorated 1905-1906. In that second version, he added factory chimneys to the horizon as a recognition to the industrial town Tampere was those days.

Hugo Simberg's The Garden of Death (1896). This one's a fresco in the Tampere Cathedral. I saw it the first time when I was very young. Maybe that's the reason why I'm into skulls?
