Artist's Description

anguish cast in stone
the victors’ pride reflected
in the vanquished’s pain

Some digital editing incorporating the face of “Angel Caido” by Ricardo Bellver in Madrid’s Jardins del Buen Retiro.

The statute is said to have been inspired by Milton

“For his pride thrown from the sky drops all his host of rebel angels to not ever return there. He waves around his eyes, and blasphemy are set in the heavens, reflected in them the deepest pain, the greatest consternation, pride hatred more fatal and more obstinate (Milton, Paradise Lost, Canto I)”

To the victors go both the spoils and the right to write history
