The Lady of the Night

The talented Jacob Petersson returns to our pages with the preserved head of an infamous Italian witch from the 16th century.

Dominalunae, lady of the night. Dianora Farnese, was executed and beheaded on a cold windy morning the 19th day of October, year of Our Lord 1593, at the outskirts of the small northern town of Corcinesco Trontano, in the heart of the Italian Alps. Her final cry a curse that echoes through the centuries until this very day.
