Lino print on paper, 4x6 inches (102x150mm), 2007.

A new child is being sent down from heaven

- Virgil, Eclogue IV

I imagine this angel is looking down at the newborn Jesus.

This image was inspired by a photograph by Lewis Carroll. I have added the halo and wings and extended the fingers.

As always with lino, this humble and rather crude material encourages simplicity of form. I tried to find the essence of the image.
