The Pillars of Heaven

pillars of heaven

Here is another illustration for Rite Publishing's Jade Oath project.

Background information on this scene:

"In the mythology of the region, the fallen pillar of heaven was one of the supports that held up heaven and was knocked over at the beginning of time when the gods fought on the earth and caused the great flood. Stones believed by some scholars to be the remains of the fallen Pillar of Heaven lie broken and scattered across the landscape of the Empire of Xianguo stretching from the Heaven's Reach Mountains scattered along the vicinity of nearly the whole length of the Ghostwall all the way to the Sea of Burning Stars."
