Shyao-Shyo's boat and barge.

This weekend, I drew a picture of the boat and barge of Shyao'Shyo, the Aspect of Shao'Kehn who comforts the dead and dying, and ferries the dead to the Land of Eternal Childhood before they reincarnate.

Notes:

* The black bone in the picture is Shayo-Shyo's walking stick. It is a bone-shaped "stick" made of Creation Onyx. (Which, for Shao'Kehn, is food for Her. So it's a bit like a human having a walking stick made of bread.)

* The "infinity" symbol does not symbolize infinity on Traipah - it symbolizes reincarnation. I don't know how they symbolize infinity.

* The bluish thing with a vague head and arms is the symbol for the soul.

* The black flame in the torch is a representation of Shyao'Shyo. This is because I didn't want to try to draw Shyao'Shyo; I have never drawn an elderly person before and would not know how to do it. The torch has Shyao-Shyo's name written on it.

* The two barges being towed by the boat are where I will be putting names of deceased friends and loved ones, in Traipahni characters.

* In the canon stories, the boat/barges actually floats in mid air, but I didn't know how to draw the underside of the boat and had no Internet access to find a model, so I just made waves to hide that part.
