Sometimes we feature artwork on Symbiartic because it’s astounding and thought-provoking. You may have seen Kaitlin Beckett’s work on Symbiartic before (when we showed off her Katana Sharks and Fan Fish), or on her site, A Curious Bestiary.

Today, Blood Goats.

Something about these seemes sad and powerful to  me. There’s something elderly here, from the medical equipment to the bleached bone like pale skin. There’s power in that eyeless gaze. Blood Goats know things we don’t know.
