Narnia Nightmare

Narnia, the Meeting by Azul Hoshi

Not all depictions of Narnia are positive. It is a scary place in a lot of ways — there’s an evil witch who turns innocent creatures to stone, a trusted friend betrays a child, and another child betrays his siblings, out of spite no less. The know-it-all hero — the Gandalf, if you will — is humiliated and  stabbed through the heart on a stone table. (Hah! I just made a parallel between Lewis and Tolkien there.) This vision of the wardrobe by Azul Hoshi turns Narnia into the stuff of horror, tree limbs reaching out for Lucy while a cold wind blows and an eye — presumably that of The Witch Witch, though it’s up for grabs — stares down.
