Symbol of Chaos by Schunki Symbol of Chaos by Schunki
I designed this one for a good friend (Michael).

Description:
The Symbol of Chaos originates from Michael Moorcock's Eternal Champion stories. In them, the Symbol of Chaos comprises eight arrows in a radial pattern.
Moorcock says, about his version :

The origin of the Chaos Symbol was me doodling sitting at the kitchen table and wondering what to tell Jim Cawthorn the arms of Chaos looked like. I drew a straightforward geographical quadrant (which often has arrows, too!) – N, S, E, W – and then added another four directions and that was that – eight arrows representing all possibilities, one arrow representing the single, certain road of Law. I have since been told that it is an "ancient symbol of Chaos" and if it is then it confirms a lot of theories about the race mind. ... As far as I know the symbol, drawn by Jim Cawthorn, first appeared on an Elric cover of Science Fantasy in 1962, then later appeared in his first comic version of Stormbringer done by Savoy.

Hey! I was wondering if I could use an edited version of this for a music project? I will gladly compensate you for it.

I love your original design so I wouldn't change much. The end result would just be that the arrow tails (within the circle) would be shaped into more of a spiral. It's a small change, admittedly, but I understand if you would rather I not. I can show you an example if you like. Alternately if you like I could commission you for a new piece (though it would be still based on the star of chaos). In either case you will of course be compensated and credited according to your preference.
