Dread Topiary of Ras Thavas

'O friend and companion of night, thou who rejoicest in the baying of dogs and spilt blood, who wanderest in the midst of shades among the tombs, who longest for blood and bringest terror to mortals, Gorgo, Mormo, thousand-faced moon, look favourably on our sacrifices!'

Leonid Andreyev with painting of Demon (drawn by himself), 1910
L. Andreyev (1871-1919) was a Russian writer of the Silver Age. He is considered to be the founder of Russian expressionism. His pre-revolutionary stories (“The Red Laugh”, “The Seven Who Were Hanged”) represent not only his democratic ideas, but also a very special (a bit insane) spirit of the epoch. Andreyev’s style is quite special because it is full of religion, mysticism and psychiatry; pessimism about life and human nature.
