Artist's description:

I loved watching the film ‘A matter of life and death’ about a WWII airman (played by David Niven) who has been shot down after a bombing raid. He thinks he’s gone to heaven having been washed ashore on an English beach. He meets a mysterious heavenly messenger, Conductor 71 (played by the wonderful Marius Goring), who informs him that his plane was lost in the fog and that he must now re-join his crew. However, Squadron Leader Peter Cartwright has fallen in love! In a dream sequence the words ‘Prop or Wings’ can repeatedly be heard. Do angels have propellors or wings?
