The Book of Ezekiel from the Bible speaks of six apocalyptic visions, anticipating the fall of Jerusalem and the God’s plans for reconstructing the present world.
Among these interesting dream-like visions we find the famous “Valley of Dry Bones”, dramatically depicted by Gustave Doré and a serious inspiration for us. That was our original idea, but, as many times, we lost the control of the design and it suddenly we lost control, some wings grew up. It was clear to us that an angel was born from the dry bones and we adopt it.
For our surprise, Ezekiel also describes the vision of Angels (Cherubim/ Seraphim) (Ufologists love to speak about that vision). We decided to interpret it freely and to explore it as a contemporary head-trip-representation.
For that we studied several kaleidoscopic examples to simulate a distorted sight of a divine creature. Sometimes, the Kaleidoscope vision shows up as symptom of migraine.
When a person has this kind of vision, the brain designs fractured or brightly and colourful images similar to the images we see when we look through a kaleidoscope.
“Kaleidoscope vision is just one type of aura. Auras occur in response to a sudden increase in neuronal activity. In most cases, auras are due to migraine.”
