Artist's description:

This painting was created in response to the U.K. and U.S.A and coalition forces entering into a conflict with Iraq. The image is 'collateral' damage and is one of many images that are accessible via the Internet.

I chose this image out of many because of the use of young children used in Old Master Paintings, particularly used to represent Cupid/s. In this case I wanted to allude, via the title, the burning of this young person's wings, having their life cut sort - therefore no Cupid - symbolic of the lack of love from the West to those who live in the Middle East, sitting, as I perceived the Politicians, on the West's OIL.
