The culture of the sandlands seemed so different from Vampsylvania! Most of the artworks back in my homeland were dedicated to surgery...
Internal organs, skeletons, anatomy sheets, beautiful bodies in the middle of operations, charts showing the range of motion of various limbs; statues depicted surgically modified bodies, amputations and various transplants.
Not all of the illustrations were dedicated to studies, of course. We had fine art, too, so don't think that vampires are some aristocratic eggheads, completely unaware of what entertainment is. My father for one was most proud to possess a rare and most ancient painting depicting a couple of naked youths playing with some of the world's most antique tools for waist-cinching.
That was the art I grew up to admire and it was quite interesting to explore a whole different culture."
