Angel or Icarus?

She's either an ascending angel....or this is the moment of hubris before the wax melts away.  Personally, I'm a little more inclined to think she's a pseudo-character from a Greek tragedy rather than a biblical messengers of God.

  1. Or she's a harpy come to feast on your flesh, also from Greek mythology

  2. Jeremy: Yeah, let's just hope it one of the former...rather than the latter. Then again, flesh-eating super-spy does have a nice ring to it.

  3. From what I've read, Greek harpies were generally brass-taloned, cat-o-nine-tails-wielding hags charged with flaying unruly shades down in the Underworld. Kimber here seems a touch photogenic for the role...though now I'm thinking "Winged Kitten with a Whip." Either way, angel/devil archetype pics could seriously do with a bit more variety, and two-tone pinions make for a decent start.

  4. Anon: Underworld hags. Yep, leave it to the ancient Greeks to foresee the present-day incarnation ex-mother-in-law.
