Using splashed and dripping paint as blood, I morphed those into flowers (also featured in the inner layout) and the elongated spears of the warriors of the time. Amongst the "chaos" I featured the imagined profile of the bearded warrior king. Full cover: "Yamtarawala, the Warrior King" by Henry Akubuiro (2023) Some of the reference images.
