For a personal view, this is a very strong piece for me. I'm not a religious person, but I find all religions most interesting especially when thinking about the known characters.
On the upper left, there is arch angel Samael, he's said to be the angel of war. Upper right there's Gabriel, the angel of Death, with everlasting depressive expression on his face and a huge unique scythe in his hands.
The middle angel is the Morning Star, most controversial "person" of them all, in my opinion at least. But he's what everyone wants and everyone needs and feeds from, the first and last, beginning and the end. And he's empty and heartless.
And finally there's this individual who falls alone amidst all of the pain and anguish of the chaotic world. What happens to her remains to be seen..
