when angels become demons

I guess I was so drunken and excited working on this one that I accidentally gave the female figure six fingers, which reflects my own mutated state as an artist. I could have fixed it, but I was so amazed at the error of it that I decided it should stay. This work was inspired by the biblical story of beautiful seraphim angels who came down to earth to desire and have sexual relations with human women. They were as the story goes transformed into demons to serve Satan, and permanently cast out of heaven. It is a an archetypal subject which I have always been interested in.
