Qlippothic Color Scale

Colors of death, decay and things that go bump in the night.
Recently, I have been taking part in an online conversation about whether there is a color scale for the Qlippoth; and if so, what would the basis of that color scale be. My personal gut reaction is that it would not just be various shades of black or a mixture of the Prince (Vav) and Princess (Heh final) color scales. No, it would be based on things that disgust and make one sick to one's stomach (unless you are into necromancy and zombies---no judgment here, hehe). Rotten meat, slime, the inside of the dead organs, things like that. The photo here is a part of a page (page 28) from Drawing and Painting the Undead by Keith Thompson; this particular chart shows the Color Spectrum of Death. I believe that this little chart illustrates what I am talking about. If it does not, feel free to visit your local funeral home or city morgue.

The Qlippoth of Hod would be the concrete-gray and puke-green-paint colors of the DMV. A better example of the dead hand of bureaucracy, I know none.

There are a couple of offices on the campus that are painted in uglicious colors that I dread going into because of the bureacracy involved in their non-functionality.
