TOPIC = Death's Lobby
suggested by Pixeltuner
Sounds of a cloak rustling gently in the wind... or dead silence. Is the afterlife everything it was hyped up to be and more?
Welcome to Death's lobby...

DEADLINE: Friday, February 17, 2012
My starting inspiration was a doctor's waiting room, and I wanted a lone, simple metal chair. I also wanted something "off" about the image, so that led to the skull reflection in the tile. Also a little humor in the "LIFE" magazine on the chair.
A good host always tidies up before a visit.
The concept is Death waiting as his hourglass counts down to the arrival of the recently deceased, as there spirits enter his lobby (via a portal) they surround his thrown to await there fate.
"Death's Lobby is a neutral, lonely place. You face death at the end, alone, where your fate is decided."
The "big death" is meant to be a big statue and a "machine for judgement", impersonal and automatic, weights deeds, and punishes or rewards.
This is a lobby as the place through which afterlife is entered.
