25 Pictures of Devils in Art
The devil has been depicted in different forms in different cultures throughout history always associated with humans dark side and often described as creatures like serpents, dragons and fallen angels with power to send evil suggestions into the human hearts.
As evil had no physical attributes, artists created them. The evil forces were personified as far as the ancient Egyptians where Seth is the god of storms and war.
From then on, we can find devils all over different religions, sometimes mixing particular physical elements from distinctive cultural representations. Christian versions of the devil, for example, gathered the horns and tail from the Egyptian god Bes and the cloven feet from the Greek god Pan.
Devils often have their own home like hell, underworld and other punishment places, usually depicted as afterlife and eternal destinations.
Christian versions of the devil appear frequently in Western art, generally in Medieval and Renaissance European art.
