immaculate cameo trailed by alabaster faces increasingly desiccated by khor'vela
Look: The disturbing collection features a nearly translucent, pure white stone carved with a feminine visage bearing an emotionless expression. Connected by no visible means are twelve smaller, streaked alabaster faces with the same familiar features, their beautifully apathetic aspects marred by increasingly severe pale pink furrows resembling fingernail scratches and patches of khor'vela corruption bursting with bones. Nearly obscured by the crowd of disembodied heads is a crimson pyrope Bloodworm Comet.
