    An Evil Plan In Anor Londo

    Post by Dark Spirit EliteBiker20 on Thu Jul 26, 2012 9:52 pm

    Is it just me, or has anybody else noticed some very disturbing images on the walls of Anor Londo? Recently, when I arrived at Anor Londo, from Sen's Fortress, I noticed these images on the walls as I was going down the stairs towards the giant. It was a set of three images, one on top of another. The picture at the bottom looks like a basket full of different body parts. The one above that looks like some sort of oven, or cooking device. And the third image looks like a creature that was created from those body parts. I do not currently have a picture of this, but if you look at the area that I am talking about, you will see these images. Either I am seeing them completely wrong, or it seems to be some kind of plan to create creatures from random parts. If anybody can go check this out and let me know what they think, it will be very much appreciated.

    Check out Emergence's linking lore thread in the archives. Decent discussion on it in there. We felt they were representative of many goddess themes

    Basket of Limbs? It always struck me as a baby in a basket.

    Though A baby and a furnace with a maiden, even weirder if you ask me.

    All fertility/goddess icons. If I recall correctly there is wheat in the city as well. Harvest is also often tied to fertility or goddess symbolism

    Indeed, but still. Did they have to put the baby so close to the furnace?

    If it's like my baby she probably got there all by herself despite advice otherwise

    If you look at tapestries and paintings from the middle ages, what Anor Londo seems to be emulating, there were always disturbing images painted. I think they are to scare people into believing in nonsense.

    To me it represents the fact that human beings are burning their humanity (innocence) in the bonfires to create gods....

    Tolvo just posted a good pic here


    and this is where I looked at the engravings in Emergence's thread. Toward the bottom of the text wall. Looking at Tolvo's pic I stand by my assertion in that thread. Looks more like a maiden, kiln or oven and bread basket surrounded by wheat. The maiden could be at an altar or a crib.

    Yeah I can agree with him, sort of the impression I got from most of the imagery in Anor Londo, especially the Way of White flowers.

    I think there's a lot of fairly innocent or downright inspirational imagery in the game to contrast the starkness of the current world of Lordran. If it started off as some sinister (and I don't mean left handed) and evil hell hole and fell to darkness who really cares. But the heroes of the old world becoming gods, building a city of light, on top of a mountain to seek the glory of the sun and bring forth prosperity and light to the world....to have them fall.....
