The hand carved angel stands guardian over the earth and the departed. Perfect grace, serenity and nobility created by man's hand is etched by rain and discoloured and hidden under green lichens that are creeping over its surface ignoring the assumed power of the subject. A single white feather sits on the shoulder of the angel...dropped by a bird perhaps- or an angel?
This is part of the Work of Nature Work of Man series but slightly turns it around. The work of man has been transformed by nature but the work of man here is also speaking of eternity. As perhaps the white feather is too.
Inside the frame of this painting, a single white feather also nestles at the foot of the painting sealed eternally behind glass.
This original painting has been sold.
Prints are available (see print section) and each print includes a single white feather picked up by Liz while out in nature, to be included with the picture inside the frame.
