Skeleton Krew no.028 Madame Morte

The Skeleton Krew Collection is back just in time for the ghoulish season, with a new cabinet card portrait entitled Madame Morte. Staring with the macabre behind her eyes, this face of death is lovely and magically. Madame Morte was a pure alchemist at heart and held unseen forces with nature. She lived in a small wooden shack in theLouisiana swamps and was considered mad but no one would ever cross her, for she would cast a spell on them for eternity.  

I picked this antique cabinet card up at a local flea market that surrounds the haunted Eastern State Penitentiary. The portrait measures 4.125" w x aprox 6.5" h and is painted in gouache. This portrait is a dark and mysterious, perfect to spook a friend and ready for any gothic party or personal painting collection.
