I painted this one for the first big challenge that CGHub held a couple of years ago..

Wow, it takes a moment to take all of this in, but I think I get it now. It has an oddly biblical, almost altar painting sort of feel to it despite all the obvious shamanistic details. A really nice bit of surreal fantasy.
Thanks! Actually I don't know exactly the real full meaning of this either. I played around with composition and some symbolism and pretty much intuitively arrived at the end result(well.. a little bit of thought was put into it as well). Guess it's supposed to be interpreted personally more than anything else.. I wanted to leave it a little vague for that
