Title
The central panel representing The Angel of Death and Purification
Description
A large winged figure of the Angel of Death stands central to this panel. Red flames burst forth from the robes in which a bird sits and another hovers above. Long red wings highlight the flame coloured hair of the angel. The artist has shown her interest in Pre Raphaelite design and the Celtic revival with her use of brushwork and the Celtic knot in the sleeve.
