Kane by Frank Frazetta
Frank Frazetta, Dark Kingdom 1976

All my life I have been an uninhibited and joyous Frank Frazetta fan! The man was and remains a legend to anyone who's ever read a comic book, bought a Conan The Barbarian book, or slobbered over his drawings of the human anatomy.

This painting is titled Dark Kingdom and was first used in 1976 as the cover of Karl Edward Wagner's novel Dark Crusade, from Wagner's series about the immortal ancient Conananesque warrior Kane - I bought, read, and owned all of them back in the 1970s.

Christina Rees says it best:
Time is the great equalizer, but with Frazetta’s work, time didn’t have to stretch far to convince us of his greatness. We loved him once upon a time and find it all too easy to love him all over again.

Long live the master through his amazing art!
