Pisacis (Phra-Men-Ma)

I bought this t-shirt from the Mars Volta store several, several years ago, I think right after Frances dropped. It's literally my favorite shirt ever and since it won't last forever, I'm thinking about possibly getting it tattooed on me somewhere.

It was labeled as Pisacis (Phra-Men-Ma) when I bought it, but I've never seen it again online anywhere. I was curious to learn more about the image, the artist, what it might mean in context to Frances the Mute or Miranda...

Any info would be awesome! Thanks!

Back in the day there was a design a TMV t-shirt contest. Various posters here at the comatorium entered their artwork and few were chosen to be made into shirts and the rest of us here bought the shirts if we liked them. I too have that shirt. (At Least I think I still have it) it was created by sgriska who is an awesome artist who works in a variety of mediums. (Media?) I forget the other name she uses. I'll get back to you in a minute.

Oh yeah the name user name she uses now is Egle. She doesn't post here as much anymore, but send her a PM. She is a very nice, gracious lady and would be happy to know someone was still rocking that shirt.

I'm happy that community tshirt contest was a thing, although I forget what it was called. I saw someone at a Bosnian Rainbows show a couple years ago wearing a shirt from the contest—I think it had a person wearing a red bandana over their face, with some train tracks receding into the distance...
