"This is how it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come and separate the wicked from the righteous and throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth." (Mat 13:49,50)

I'm not religious, but if anyone personifies what I imagine an angel might look like better than this guy, I've yet to come across him.

Update: often, when I post something that I'm not entirely sure about, your feedback is useful, and this one's no exception. What I was aiming for with this image was some sense of quite how surreal and striking I thought this guy seemed, and that's why I selectively desaturated the background: to draw him out from his surroundings. But, on reflection, it was probably a bit too drastic (or maybe literal) way to do it. So, the version's that's up now is less extreme. If you're interested, the original is here:
