Oil clay figure sculpture of an angel. Half is decrepit and scarred, the other fragile, vibrant, and full of life.

I love the juxtaposed wings and hair. It adds a certain... agony to the piece one would expect from a fallen angel. It almost looks like one on the wings is deteriorating or mangled. Beautiful :)

Looking at this image, I thought of a fallen angel, like the one Valentine kept for experiments in the City of Bones series. The pose is realistic, like a troubled soul. It's cool, but if I were to change one thing, it would be the hair. It looks too stylized or something.
