Fremen Sietch and Sietch Entrance - Dune fan art by Finnian Macmanus

“Always thought it would be interesting to explore a fremen society that travelled through smaller sietches, taking up their belongings and moving to the next safe haven. Light pours in from the small rock fracture above as the Fremen elders wearing stillsuits exit their discussion chamber - they have come to a decision on the next migration, and will lead their people to a new home.

This sietch doesn’t stay exactly true to the universe, but still wanted to have a crack at it. The rock formations were based upon the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland.”

From the Met:

This vase shows a scene that must be related to Herakles’ journey to the west, outside the ring of ocean that encircled the earth. Traveling in the bowl of the sun, he reached an otherworldly place where he had to kill the monster Geryon, a creature similar to Hades, the god of the underworld. Here Herakles offers a sacrifice to Helios as the sun rises.
