''Isle of the Dead'' is a 141 3/4 x 189 inch (360 x 480 cm) acrylic painting created by Creator/TakashiMurakami in 2014.

''Isle of the Dead'' was but one of several paintings created in-response of the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2011_T%C5%8Dhoku_earthquake_and_tsunami 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami]], paintings depicting crowds of [[CrapsaccharineWorld nightmarish (yet candy-colored)]] portraits of ''arhats'', Buddhist monks near-enlightenment that dedicate themselves to helping in a world of suffering.

* SeniorCreep: ''So'' many old men, ''so'' few kissable faces among them.
* WingdingEyes: One of the larger monks on the right-side has the most pronounced amount of swirls in its eyes with black sclera.
* WorldGoneMad: While all of the arhats are exaggerated to great absurdity, some of them take it a few horizon lines too far, be it one of the largest ones sporting [[ExtraEyes eight-eyes]], one being literally black-skinned with a tree growing out of its head and various, arguably mythical animals among them.
