Recommended Posts

I hope this doesn't upset anyone, but, uhh, there's this "similarity" between beezlebub and facing Roma!?



Designs are sure to repeat amongst cultures... when it comes to Satan sheets🤪





Sure seems to be one real horny SOB... wait a second. Who is Satan's mom anyways???

Maybe the greatest Hollywood horned satanic beasts:


and plenty of different horned types from antiquity:




I feel like I'm missing more great satanic looking examples. Can you help me??

As Lucifer he is also the Lightbringer, a positive figure. Obviously a strenuous job, which is why in Diana must also support him.

Amd of course Domna looks devilish.
