Title
Choir of Angels
Description
Composition in black, blue, ochre and white tones. Contour lines, colored and shaded shaved effects. Composition representing group of angels standing and facing front, against white background. The angel who is more forward, has his head turned to the right, Wears flowing tunic with a kind of tail flying on the right flying, forming an "S". He has the right arm along the body and the left one folded, holding in his hand what would be a paper straw. He has two well-defined wings ajar. The group is well behind this first angel, and we see up to five faces with defined facial features and more in the background, hinting to ten more angels. The coloring is arbitrary, and we see areas in blue and ochre with shavings.
