An illustration of three woman in a forest huddled around a ritual knife. It is starting to snow. One of the women is looking at the viewer as if they are witnessing something they should not. The woman have long wild hair and the knife is dark with something. The art style is sketchy and painterly, an eerie, hazy red-black and yellow-green.
