Exterminating Angel
Exterminating Angel
Acrylic on Panel
16" X 16"

One Christmas season I was seeing a lot of pretty angel decorations, and I noticed at the same time the news was filled with wars, disease and starvation. It occurred to me then that there is another angelic tradition: the angel of death. I thought of Ernst Barlach's wonderful sculpture 'The Avenger'.
