Araya knows how to create such creepy creatures with a few strokes and stains that one can only marvel at his boundless imagination. He himself speaks of his source of inspiration as follows:

“Where did I get this interest in horror and decay? I’m afraid I don’t have the answer – I suppose some of us just want to be damned.”
