"Angelic brother"

A bit of work from the wondrous hand
of Fra Angelico (1395-1455) for Good Friday.
Detail from a crucifixion including both fall
and redemption, the blood of Christ
beginning to stream onto the skull of Adam.

Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
