Although Completed In April,

with winter evenings drawing in,

 I thought this illustration by Norway-based artist Skurk who took one of natures more unusual fish, 

in this case the deep sea anglerfish, (Melanocetus johnsoni), and made it into a fearsome set of stairs as he used the two stairwell lights as focal points for the fishes eye and phosphorescent lure, if you go to the link to the fish have a read, the male angler fish just has to mate, if not when a male angler matures, its digestive system degenerates, making it impossible for it to feed on its own, it must now find a female or die of starvation, you can see more of Skurk's work on Instagram.
