Houshiary was born in Iran but works in Britain. This is one of a series of sculptures of various sizes in which the wings of an angel symbolize force and energy. The image of a four-winged angel is derived from those found in Byzantine churches in Istanbul where two wings are directed towards earth and two point upwards to the sky. Power, according to the artist, lies at the meeting point.
