Aleister Crowley - May Morn

I was made aware of the following painting recently. It's from the hand of the noted occultist Aleister Crowley. It's a somewhat disturbing image, and depicts the end of the age of Christianity. In it 'Christianity' is depicted hung from a tree with bright orange hair.

(May Morn)
"The picture is symbolical of the New Aeon. From the blasted stump of dogma, the poison oak of "original sin," is hanged the hag with dyed and bloody hair, Christianity"
The above passage which accompanies the image is from The Equinox Vol. 3. No. 1. by Aleister Crowley. The full passage can be found here.
