Escorted to Heaven: The dead and the angels...

This Post is all about the belief that you're not going alone to heaven.

  1. Most of these are marble sculpture? Astounding detail.

  2. Yes they are. Especially the first one leaves you with a gaping mouth. Unbelievable level of detailling there.

  3. "Silent islands surrounded by loud cities" - very nice, Martin.

    Oh my...
    such beauty and emotion.
    The light.
    The shadows.
    Those expressive faces.

    Would you be terribly upset if
    I pinned some of your images to my
    Angelology Board on Pinterest?

    I am an artist.
    Your images have inspired
    me to draw and paint them!

    Please say yes!!!
