Among the angels

It is not known precisely where angels dwell whether in the air, the void, or the planets. It has not been God's pleasure that we should be informed of their abode - Voltaire

Just found the Los Angeles Museum of Science and Industry's catalogue of the Our Lady Queen of the Angels installation by Tony Duquette from 1981. It includes an original "Saeta" in verse by Ray Bradbury and introduction by Clare Boothe Luce (author of The Women, amongst others).
While searching for images to post I came across the accompanying soundtrack of the exhibition. How fabulous is that?

Now playing: Dead Can Dance - The Host of Seraphim
