The Story Of This Painting.

I was inspired to create this painting from a very famous 1894 sculpture by William Wetmore Story for the grave of his wife at the Protestant Cemetery in Rome. You can read more about this sculpture on this Wikipedia page: Angel of Grief.

In my version, instead of the Angel weeping and draped over a tomb, she is draped over and enveloped by the COVID-19 virus. A Guardian Angel striving to protect humanity form the COVID-19 virus.
