Angels Talking

A 3D landscape collage made with magazine clippings shows a man with black wings and a woman with red-tipped black wings facing each other with speech bubbles that say “....” and “....”. The man is white with a black mustache, black top hat, long black trench coat, and is holding a cane. He is standing on top of an ornately decorated pillared structure and is peering over a decorative railing. On the ground below him, the white woman is wearing her black hair in an updo, a long black blouse and long black skirt, and is holding a small white purse. In the foreground behind the woman and under the pillared structure are plants and trees with lots of leaves. In the background a desert is between a mountainscape and the winged people. The blue sky is painted with waves of gold rays and white fluffy clouds.
