    Angel of the North-West?

    He who on this site goes by the name Earnest Teadrinker, has increased his canon of cartoons of me with this gift-wrap from a belated birthday present he gave me yesterday. I could expound at length about the artist's use of raw materials, the power of the primitive, the connections between earth and heavens, the human rising and the divine falling, comment on how this differs from Gormley's Angel only inasmuch as his does not have a face, as such, but has a far better figure... but you've read enough guff like that here recently; so, just enjoy.
