Yes it is.
And I'm hoping to know more.
Plus I'm following an AC comic that takes place in the Incan Empire.

Was this inspired by the mummified girl archaeologists found somewhere in south america? (details are a bit hazy in my memory)

These stories of finding mummies always give me the chills but also excite me. It's chilling to see somebody who died hundreds of years ago preserved so well.

Great illustration. You managed to turn a rather grim subject (human sacrifice) into a beautiful piece of art

i like how you put more light on the figure after the rough. it brings her out more and gives the story a clearer message

Is this based on a particular deity? Or did you just make your own?

It's based on the Incan sun god, Inti.
