Chamber of Horrors

This is one of those kinds of graphics where the imagination supplies more detail than the eyes, especially when you know the title.

Fascinating symbols there in the dark. Is this a Czech print? I've not heard of the artist before. Thanks for posting this, very mysterious; the artist knew that horror lies in creating the unseen.

Yes, Czech. The artist was primarily a sculptor, as it rather shows in this print. Much of his work was mystical and mysterious.
