The Star

The Star
Hope, faith, rejuvenation

The woman in the black dress watches as the body is dragged to the edge of the pit.  The hooded person raises the corpse and places it onto one of the many hooks hanging over the crater.  The figure cuts open the body so that blood flows freely from it before pushing the hook out further over the pit.

Dozens of carcasses are suspended from the hooks and chains, their ichor dripping into a pond of blood.  The woman disrobes and steps into the pool.  Her offering is good, and her god will make her young once again.
