Angels in Paradise

Angels in Paradise

Artist – Charles Huckvale

Design Description

The Angels in Paradise are surrounded by verses on the inevitability of death, they are based on an ancient Persian compound cloth motif from the 12th century. They appear in both positive and negative form in this monochromatic design, which references Amy Johnson’s passage through air space that was part of the old Persian empire, and echos her untimely death.
