This painting is from my "Fallen Angels" series. Azael is an evil, fallen angel who cohabited with women. The theme of this series was inspired from certain religions that teach that fallen angels, once pure messengers of God, followed the Devil out of Heaven and unto the Earth in rebellion against the Creator.
In my paintings the fallen angels represent, symbolically, us: people. We could say that most of us are fallen angels, for we appear to be lost people too caught up in our earthly experience. We are ruled by our minds and not our inner being, our awareness, the thinking created by the brain causes us to 'fall' when left to run on its own.
This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.
