Gabriel the Archangel

Still continuing my series of the sinners I now present Gabriel the Archangel played by a Eynsham Morris dancer. Gabriel is often painted as a mortal man. Traditionally he blows a horn to initiate the 'Last Judgement'. Here the accordion chord instead of calling for 'fresh men' sound the end of times. This chord is symbolised by the sound wave on the horizon. His body holds back the chaos.
