Loading Passage Reference...

I chose this passage from Revelation because I wanted to illustrate the Wrath of God in a more modern approach. The style of the piece is my take on old natural science illustrations and alchemy diagrams of the Heavens. The geometric shape in the center represents God as a continuous form that has seven points or aspects; these then become the vials that contain God's Wrath. The individual Wrath's themselves reminded me of many modern problems we face today such as disease, pollutions, drought, and wild fires. These are all pressing global concerns that are foreshadowed in the Bible on the path to Armageddon.
