ANGELS – What are They?

Task

ANGELS - What are they? Where do they come from?

Begin the search by locating the angel from the romantic fantasy film "Der Himmel über Berlin", by Wim Wenders (1987).

–Magnús Sigurðarson

What did I turn to? A bronze head from Benin – The Winged Victory of Samothrace – from the Hellenistic period, the Winged Victory Monument on top of the Victory Column in Berlin, and a drawing from Duchamp’s early animation, Rotorelief. The colour spectrum is from the Kabbalistic Tree of Life diagram set into the concentric circles from Rotorelief.
