The Arm of Mahadev / Bloodletting

From my w-i-p graphic novel 'Sauptik: Blood and Flowers' © Amruta Patil 2016

Had shared the predictable Flowers. It was time to share the Blood. Jayanta Mahapatra's 'Sunday' (thanks, Sumana Roy, for the lead) changed the way I perceived the act, visually:
"A hand of God
from the shapeliness
of the arm
where the flesh
had long bled out."
