    Description

    Gerald Brom Hemah Angel Painting Original Art (1995). Af and Chemah (or Hemah) are two of the six angels of death, the others being Gabriel over kings; Kapziel over youths; Mashbir over animals; Mashchit over children. Af and Chemah are the destructive angels over men and beasts (Beit ha-Midrash, 2:98). Unlike the others, however, these are often paired together, apparently because they are chained to each other with bonds of black and red fire on the seventh level of heaven (Gedulat Moshe), Hemah is said to be the angel of wrath, fury and destruction who governs the death of domestic animals. According to Jewish lore, Hemah lives in the seventh heaven. This painting by the celebrated fantasy and Magic:The Gathering artist, rendered in mixed media on board, has an image area of 7.25" x 11.25". In Excellent condition. Signed and dated by Brom at the lower right.
