    Steve Rude Arcana Mater Cover Original Art (Edizioni Lo Scarabeo, 2001). Majestic and powerful, this immense cosmic being strides over the temples and towers of an alien civilization in this fantastic piece by the well-known artist of Nexus, and many other projects. It was produced for a smaller independent comic publisher in Italy, and intended as a cover. In fact, it is extremely similar to the cover of the first issue. It is unclear if this was ever published or not. This piece is signed in red by Steve "The Dude" Rude in the lower margin. It was produced in ink over blue pencil on Bristol board with an image area of 8.75" x 13.75". It you want a piece of powerful Steve Rude art, that is also as rare as it is cool... this is the one! In Excellent condition.
