Here is a picture of an old angel, who seems to have fallen from the sky in London. She is dressed in a white gown, lying on her stomach, face down and has featherless wings. How did this angel fall from the skies?
As many of you may have guessed, this is not a real angel. This is just an artistic installation of two artists from Beijing, Sun Yuan and Peng Yu. They call this project “Angel” and this is what their website says about it, “The angel, an old woman in a white gown and with featherless wings, is lying face-down on the ground; maybe sleeping, maybe dead, but certainly immobile and frozen into an all too realistic image. The supernatural being, now nothing more than an impotent creature, can neither carry out any supreme will nor be of any help to those believing in its existence. The angel is true but ineffective; dreams and hopes are sincere yet vain.”
