Well done. Very ancient and very futuristic. I think the Alien series used this creature for inspiration. Nice processing to meet the demands of the voters.

Very interesting picture in its beatific golden light; a section of this horseshoe crab that is so damn similar to a scull, the surviving brain-like creature.
I see the mark of The Bear.
