I love Baizley's work, but is it becoming a post-metal cliche?

Pehaps, but its a decent enough twist to the Nymph of Eden gleaning the Earthly Carnal Knowledge from ol 'Bub...looks like she mighta done kilt the poor bastard anyway :)

And at least its not a common slithery belly crawler in the depiction, eh? even if the curly horns is just a bit 'off'...

on second glance, there is other interesting symbolism involved as well...the fallen c***erel (Adam?), poor ol Beelz head lain upon the Crown of Thorns, and what appears to be the head of a (Cain's?) cudgel on the left of the image

So it kinda now as a rather clever flouting of the most general of, er, 'certain' orthodox imagery and implication...of course, I could very well be WAY off :)
