St. Ursula by Jacob Whayne Dillow

St. Ursula from the Apocryphal collection

Artist: Jacob Whayne Dillow

Jacob Whayne Dillow is fascinated with the power dynamic between the Believer and the Believed. They exist in a symbiotic relationship, dependent upon one another. What happens when a higher power is no longer believed in? Is there an afterlife for divinities? In Dillow's Apocryphal, the corporation, Orpheus Initiative, seeks to discover the physical afterlife in all its forms. During one expedition, a caver comes across a purgatory-like space where Christian saints who have been deemed apocryphal, invented, or completely forgotten reside.
