8.1.14

The Woman Clothed with the Sun

The second of three pieces inspired by the Book of Revelation. The woman clothed with the sun, the moon at her feet and a crown of stars on her head; her child has been taken up into Heaven for safety while she has been given the wings of an eagle to flee from the dragon. Michael the archangel wars with the serpent who sweeps a third of the stars from Heaven with its tail.

I love your treatment of this scene from the Revelation -- for me, a very moving sequence in the Bible.

I like how comprehensive your image is, incorporating St. Michael, the dragon, the "woman clothed with the sun," etc. You did a good job of combining all this information without making it seem like too much is going on.
