Soul Calling by InnerSwirl Soul Calling by InnerSwirl
Insidious reminds me of Hmong shaman soul calling. When a person’s soul wanders one must journey to the spirit world and draw their soul back to their body. I’ve always been haunted by the unknown, be sure to keep one eye open, but those who are marked will always be connected to the underworld.

YES!! I completely agreed with you because (SPOILERS!!!!) when I first saw Insidious and they were talking about their soul leaving their body I was already like, "THIS IS TOTALLY JUST LIKE THE HMONG PEOPLE'S BELIEFS!" Then when the woman wears the mask to speak to the demon and to find the son, I also connected that to how Hmong shamans wears a mask to enter the other world to speak with the spirits. Finally, in the movie, they sent the dad's spirit to go and find his son and it just confirms how much it is based off from the Hmong shamans.

But away from that, I definitely LOVE how you drew this picture!! Once I get my new tablet, I'm definitely going to do an art cover on this! AMAZING, BRILLIANT, FREAKY, DARK, GLOOMY, and SYMBOLIC!
