I apologize in advance, if my comment is offensive to you ... that is not my intention. This painting stopped me dead in my tracks! So powerful ... it is quite literally gut-wrenching! So powerful ... how Art mirrors culture! I would have named it "The Sacrificial Lamb" ... of a young girl whose innocence is about to be stolen ... by men "disguised" in fine suits ... who are "in reality" ... Grotesque Monsters! This painting depicts ... "the secret underbelly" ... of many families! This painting "shocks the senses!" In my humble opinion ... this painting is "the most powerful" painting on Deviant Art!

This comment made me look at the men and I saw their faces were all distorted. This is powerful, I agree.

I did a double take when I saw this was done by acrylics. It's so photorealistic...and disturbing. I love it!

Gratuliere! Du hast das DD echt verdient! Ich liebe und bewundere deine Werke, nicht nur von der Qualität her sondern auch von der Botschaft, Wirkung...Dieses Bild kenne ich schon recht lange und auch die anderen aus der Serie.

Wahrscheinlich wirst du das nie lesen, aber es ist schön zu sehen das ein Künstler wie du, dessen Werke mich schon seit Jahren begeistern und halten, hier bei DA anzutreffen ist.

Interesting, I can see the irony of the piece. Initially, one might think that this is a photograph of early 20th century doctors about to perform an operation on a deformed child. Upon closer inspection, one can see that it is, in fact, the doctors who are deformed and the child who is in good health.

Amazing realism with canvas painting as well.

This is a beautifully done piece- and from a distance it looks as though their heads and the light shining between their legs formed the teeth of a huge mouth engulfing her.
While I'm not sure that was intended, that layout really seems to reinforce the message I get from this
Very nice work!

Why should anyone even try to make disturbing realistic art, when there's a Helnwein lurking miles above us?
Serious, a magnificent work of gruesome art...
