Woman # 56 (illustrated by Max Rugers)

Many people gather to listen to Alexander Burgess, who takes over the Order of Ancient Mysteries when his father dies.

In 1968 they come seeking enlightenment and he told them about Kundali Yoga and about tantric sex and astral travel. He doesn’t tell them anything important.

This woman is one of the women who tried to find knowledge in the teachings of Alexander Burgess.

She appears in Sandman # 1 page 23, panel 1.

I find this portrait fascinating. Max’s portrayal of this character doesn’t really resemble the character in the published comic much (or at least the hair isn’t the same), but feels more accurate when it comes to the type of person who would have gathered around Burgess and The Order Of Ancient Mysteries. I am curious about the expression on her face. This is definitely a very intriguing and excellent portrait.
