Azrael, Angel of Death by PeteMohrbacher Azrael, Angel of Death by PeteMohrbacher
I have watched you since you were born
I wrote your name in my book as you came into this world
I have had an eye watching your entire life
See now, your name fades with time
And now you shall return from whence you came
Delivered from this mortal coil

Let this apple take your body from you
Let my hand guide you to your rightful place
For I am your shepherd

Blessed are the dead
And now you are among them
Delivered from this mortal coil

Just ordered a mat of this piece, absolutely stunning rendition of such a classic idea; the Angel of Death. Not necessarily sinister, not necessarily benevolent, but factual, and absolute. Excellent work.

Really Awesome Art. I love the background and am amazed how you managed to pull of 7 pairs of wings, six - correction, seven - arms with freaky eyes in the hand palms, a beard made of snakes(?), and a floating book without making it look awkward. Bravo!

(Where's the eighth hand? Beneath the book?)

JRR Tolkien often referred to death as both a gift and a doom.

I saw one of those "hand eyes" once in my left hand after desperately focusing on my palm when I was in a shock stare. First thing was my flesh in my hand turned black like it would be burned then the eye appeared in the middle of that spot and it looked at me. That moment I heard a voice. And instantly I was able to controle my breath again, my muscles finally relaxed,  I collapsed and blacked out. I was 3 years old. I think it is a form of how our subconscious or counterself appears to us in moments of great stress after this experience. This... or I'm possessed. ;)

Death is not a punishment.
Deaths is the Law.

We are all bound by the Four,
Those who Ride to the End,
We are right to fear and abhor,
For they come for all Men.

Mazbael, The Angel of Desire - for all Men have longing

Udanke, The Angel of Torment - for all Men face suffering

Gadreel, The Angel of War - for all Men are bound in conflict

Azrael, The Angel of Death - for all Men must pay the debt of life

The eyes on the palms of the hands remind me of Hindi gods. I see one hand with two fingers bent a common symbol in christian art (each outstretched finger representing the father, the son and the holy spirit I believe). The apple is also a common biblical reference, I can't think of anything else it might represent (except maybe life? dunno). Many wings there, like a seraph. Then there's the halo, reminds me of Omega (last letter of Greek alphabet, often used to symbolise ends/death). It also looks like horns. What about the large book?

"In one of his forms, he has four faces and four thousand wings, and his whole body consists of eyes and tongues, the number of which corresponds to the number of people inhabiting the Earth. He will be the last to die, recording and erasing constantly in a large book the names of men at birth and death, respectively." That's really cool, thanks Wikipedia.

Anyway, this is a great piece.
