The Devil Eats the Cure for Human Suffering

Finished work:

The Devil Eats the Cure for Human Suffering at My Good Babushka. Original acrylic painting on acid free paper, approximately 8′ x 10″. The Devil Eats the Cure for Human Suffering. The Devil’s Bit. Inspired by W.C. Hazlitt’s Dictionary of Faiths and Folklore. There is one herb, flat at the bottom, almost as if its root were cut off. It is said that the devil, knowing that part of the root would cure all diseases, bit it off.
