Physical description

Framed painting of an angelic figure with halo.

Artist's statement:
This work is inspired by those who love angel hunting in the old city of Jerusalem. Angels have significance in the three monotheistic religions which have grown together in harmony in this beautiful holy city.
JUDAISM, CHRISTIANITY and ISLAM emerged historically in this order to be religions of peace and prosperity.
PILGRIMS from these three religions visit the Holy City of Jerusalem in Israel to celebrate their respective religious traditions.
