About this print:
"Free Hugs" is an original design by Devi Art Studio for the 2022 Xenomorph Print Exchange. This piece is an homage to the Facehuggers from the famous Alien and Xenomorph Scifi Horror films. This version has been elaborated upon with the addition of a lotus that sits atop the egg from which the Facehugger hatches. It is a parasitoid form of the species Xenomorph XX121 that hatches from an Ovomorph when a host is detected. This is the second stage in the Xenomorph's life cycle and exists solely to implant a Chestburster within a living host creature via their mouth.
This relief print is hand-printed in small limited-edition batches. Each batch is marked with a print version, and the artist signature.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This is an original linocut print that is printed by hand. Before purchasing your item, please note that moderate variations among prints are characteristic of this style of printmaking.
