I’ve always enjoyed looking at beautifully crafted statues, both religious and secular, and have produced a relatively large body of work from my travels, particularly from Buddhist countries.
The angel is an important religious symbol in each of the major western monotheistic religions: Zoroastrianism, Christianity, Judaism and Islam. I love the luminous quality of the stone and the melancholy expression on the face of the statue.
The original RAW file was processed in Adobe Lightroom 2, where it was rendered into black-and-white, prior to a warm/cool split tone being applied in Adobe Photoshop CS3.
