RAPHAEL

Archangel Raphael

The healer of Tobit (Book of Tobit VI.7 & ff)
 

In memory of the late Gareth Moore OP who loved J S Bach's Cello Suites and suggested using musical notation (Bach) for the figure of Raphael. Gareth gave Zlata a stone from Blackfriars,
Oxford, which is used in this work.

Sand-coloured stone with lines made of crushed semi-precious stones in blue for bile, red for the heart and green for the liver. On board.

122 x 85 cm
