Death Guides The Underworld United in the New Alex Horley Court of the Dead Art Print Collection
“To ‘Rise, Conquer, Rule’ is our challenge, our quest, our aim. If we ever hope to rise up against the Celestial Realms, we must first conquer our own destructive natures, and unite our factions.”
The Underworld United Premium Art Print is a high-end reproduction of an original acrylic and oil painting by world-renowned artist Alex Horley. This intricate and striking piece captures the dark and twisted conflicts faced by Death and his Court of the Dead: All of existence is mire in a battle between the equally vile realms of Heaven and Hell. Death and the Underworld are enslaved to harvest the mortal souls that fuel their war, but they yearn for a more noble purpose; to end the war between Heaven and Hell, and restore balance to the universe.
Alex Horley’s masterpiece is faithfully reproduced on 100% archival heavyweight paper in a highly-limited edition of 100 pieces worldwide.
Pre-orders for the framed edition of the Underworld United Premium Art Print will begin on Friday, January 26th between 9am-12pm PT, and will be priced at $250. If supplies are available, unframed prints will be available for pre-order on Monday, January 29th between 12pm-3pm PT, priced at $90.
The Underworld United is the first art print in the collection featuring key players in the Underworld. Following Death’s shepherding leadership, a narrative print featuring each of the three Factions will arrive soon for collectors to add to their Court of the Dead crypts.
Celebrate your loyalty to the Court with the Impermanence of Flesh, the Transcendence of Spirit, and the Strength of Bone, honoring the powerful forces at play in the Underworld’s fight to Rise, Conquer, Rule. Each faction print will be made available for pre-order at a later date.
