Leliel by PeteMohrbacher Leliel by PeteMohrbacher
The beat of her wings rest upon our ears
like distant thunder
like the strike of the moon cross the hot black sky
She is a rising star and a falling thought
the sweet caress of the mind wash smooth by sleep

Beautiful Leliel, Angel of Night
you've been away too long


I started this November 21, 2006. That's 3 years, 9 months, 1 day or 1,370 days in total. This is also the first new addition to my Angelarium series since I first posted Raziel in May '06.

This is easily the longest it has ever taken me to finish a painting. It went through 11 major iterations to get here and has almost no resemblance to the original WIP. I hope you all enjoy it :)

This painting is dedicated to my wife, who I promised 4 years ago that I would give her a copy of this once it was finished.

The colors chosen are as stunning as the idea. I wish you'd post the unfinished versions too.

Well hebrew and arabic are both Semitic languages, there are bound to be words with similar sounds and meanings.

Pretty cool. Though I only know the Leliel in Evangelion. Wonder if the two connect besides names.
