'A Word from Michael: It was originally titled 'The Angel of Corinth'. I had envisioned an angel reading St. Paul's famous text on love to the Corinthians. The angel is reading it for the first time and is deeply touched. For me, this litho represents technically one of the most difficult ones that I have created. The softness in her features next to her very bold and elaborate dress was a difficult and nerve-wracking process. I feel that I accomplished it....perhaps the Angel of Corinth was watching over me at that time! Part of the quote from the Corinthians is, "If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing...'
