Angels and Demons: Spirit of Repentance and Hope

Version black & white. The black and white version of the picture has been done to match the other four images in the series.I do admire this image in the duotones mode due to its additional somberness and clarity. It makes the image more in line with its metaphic subject matter and strong overtones. Originally, this picture has been contemplated as a B&W continuation of the Angels and Demons series; however, it was not challenging enough for me. Therefore, I have decided make a color version first.

The heavens will not be filled with those who never made mistakes but with those who knows that they were doing wrong and try to fix that. Angel Orphiel is a spirit of repentance and hope. He is the fourth angel after Michael, Raphael, and Gabriel in the Book of Enoch written by the great-grandfather of Noah. Orphiel means - the face of God. Other versions are Phanuel, Peniel, Orfiel, etc. He is a member of the four Angels of Presence otherwise Archangels. He is believed to be an angel of exorcism as well as penance and self-punishment. Christian dogmatic tradition states that he will fight the Antichrist or the demon of lies during the Armageddon and win. Ironically, in religious art he is depicted with an accent on his eyes, which is supposed to characterize him watching over God’s kingdom, as well as watching people and their sins. That was a literal understanding what angels do for our ancestors. Nevertheless, the church is not a theological classroom. It is a conversation.
