The story of Her Angel Inside

Representations of angels and otherworldly beings are subject to cultural perspectives and bias. In this work, "Her Angel" referred to in the title takes different forms. Angels inspired by the christian tradition, but depicted with moth wings and elongated bodies, are seen flying in the background. A carved manaia figure occupies the foreground. In Maori carving manaia can be seen with a bird's head and a serpent's tail. Their three fingers of birth, life and death represent the inevitable mortality of mankind. Manaia are said to be the messengers between the earthly world of mortals and the domain of the spirits. Sofia's interpretation of this is that in essence, manaia are angels, and this painting provides a place of convergence for different cultural representations of the next world and its messengers.
