KYRIEL, a Fire Portrait by Nawfal Johnson 

Title:  “KYRIEL“.

Creation Date: 1 Dec 16.

“Fire Portraits” Series.

Year:  2016.

Influence:  “To Reign in Hell” novel by Steven Brust.

Art Photographs:  Photography of fire shaped into Portrait-like imagery, of the characters, angels, in “To Reign in Hell”, written by Steven Brust.

Note  1:  After doing the first art photo, I said to myself, “I’m seeing some faces from Brust’s novel in this image, and I need to investigate, and work this out further to see what develops.”  Note 2:  One very interesting aspect of Brust’s story is that all of the angels were essentially good until a conflict and deception arose among the angels.  On top of that, the three “evil” angels in the story ( evil according to many ‘modernised’ views…modern being several thousand years for Satan/Lucifer/Devil, and hundreds for Mephisto ) — Satan and Lucifer are the same entity,  and Mephistopheles is the name invented for the historical Johann Georg Faust (c. 1480–c. 1540), and in demonology, Mephistopheles was “one of the seven chief devils and the tempter of Faust”.  Nevertheless, in Brust’s story, Satan and Lucifer are “First-Borns”, and Mephistopheles is an archangel, not devils or demons.  Note 3:  My Brust angels are a contradiction because they are made of fire.  Angels of fire, I think is a contradiction.  Note 4:  “Zaphkiel is chief of the order of thrones and one of the 9 angels that rule Heaven; also one of the 7 archangels.” (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zaphkiel).  In Brust’s story, Zaphkiel is a great warrior and leader of the soldiers of Yaweh.  Note 5: Kyriel is one of the lesser angels in the Brust story; nevertheless, this  portrait, this likeness, is more detailed than many of those, of the major angels in the  story.
