Corpus Delicti / Disquisition II

"In morals, theosophy builds its teachings on the unity, seeing in each form the expression of a common life, and therefore the fact that what injures one injures all. To do evil i.e., to throw poison into the life-blood of humanity, is a crime against the unity."
Quote by Annie Besant

A new personal work starting out as an exercise but become so fascinating to work on. this is a homage to artists Max Sauco and Nekro, but also Olivia and Brom.

In the middle of working this out, I found a solution on how to adjust levels of different ornamental elements in a way that they look like one thing, exactly like Nekro does it, the look wasn´t anymore that bright I have intended it to be like in the disquisition piece so I had to come up with either a new idea for a series or add it to the Corpus Deliciti:

Actually I ended up using several elements plus some new one and then found that one meaning of the word "disquisition" already meant " investigation", so it came naturally that this piece has to be the solution of both, a story of a crime and investigation. Hence the quote on top of the description.

But I leave it up to you to make up a story about which is which, have fun;)
