Illustration Friday - Angels and Devils

The theme for Illustration Friday this week is Angels and Devils. So, here's this weeks illustration (I don't think I've posted this before):

This is my 'cross' painting. I always wanted to do my interpretation of what happened the night Jesus died but I really wanted it to be very different to anything traditional. I know it's a bit gruesome but so was what happened on the cross. Why does this fit the theme? Because at no other time in history were angels and devils stirred so much!

That's a great picture, I prefer people who depict the crucifixion as the barbaric form of death that it was. And a great explaination as to why it fits the theme.

Hi all and thank you for your comments. This painting is 60cm x 45cm (24"x18"). It's acrylic and black ink on board. I meant it be strong and stirring.
