"He is a wicked man, who comes to children when they won't go to bed, and throws a handful of sand into their eyes, so that they start out bleeding from their heads. He puts their eyes in a bag and carries them to the crescent moon to feed his own children, who sit in the nest up there. They have crooked beaks like owls so that they can pick up the eyes of naughty human children." E. T. A. Hoffmann, "The Sandman"

Concept photography created using a clay mask, real beetles and plastic bag for hood, reptile eyes created in photoshop.

Outstanding Creativity. The makeup job and everything is truly perfect. This photo tells a story with the makeup, the light, and the emotion with nothing else needed. I was wondering if you want to enter this into my photo challenge called Your Haunting Portraits.
