An Evening with La in Opar


"Then the priestess, standing above him, began reciting what Tarzan took to be an invocation, the while she slowly raised her thin, sharp knife aloft. It seemed ages to the ape-man before her arm ceased its upward progress and the knife halted high above his unprotected breast."
-The Return of Tarzan, Edgar Rice Burroughs, 1913.

La didn't kill Tarzan, of course. She fell in love with him, and tried to help him. Tarzan rejected her, so in the end, it was La who got her heart ripped out. Love is gruesome.

I loved the Tarzan books when I grew up, so I wanted to create one, perhaps a few more, Tarzan inspired scenes.
