Frankenstein’s Monster

Frankenstein's Monster

‘His yellow skin scarcely covered the work of muscles and arteries beneath: his hair was of a lustrous black, and flowing; his teeth of a pearly whiteness; but these luxuriances only formed a more horrid contrast with his watery eyes, that seemed almost of the same colour as the dun white sockets in which they were set, his shrivelled complexion and straight black lips.’ – Mary Shelley, Frankenstein, 1818

(Apologies for the double post, was just done because I wanted one with the painting by itself, where it would show up in the reader. ๐Ÿ™‚ )
