A Peace for Palestine


Inspired by two simultaneous events, worlds apart, but inextricably linked.
There was an ongoing downwards spiral of relationships between Israel and Palestine. It seemed that Palestine was in need of help from a higher authority.

A Facebook post, contrived or not, I know not. A cloud formation in the shape of an Angel, glowing orange in the sun set, hovered over the coast of California.

I was struck by a sense of rage and irony. Rage because if ever there was a misplaced angel, this was it. Irony because what was an angel doing hovering above the Sunshine Coast of the country that supports the oppression of Palestine?

So I built Palestine an Angel, because I thought they could do with one.
