Abstract Apocalypse

We’ve seen Gabor’s abstract works here many times, but I think this is the first religious one we’ve seen.  Given the skull, the horn, and the angel wings, it’s a pretty safe assumption that this is a take on Gabriel blowing his horn to signify the end of days.  The thing about this particular image is that it’s not limited to Christian mythology.  While Gabriel appears in Islamic myth, it’s Israfel who sounds the trumpet of doom there.  For the Norse, Heimdall (the dude who stood on the end of the rainbow bridge in the Thor film) will blow the Gjallarhorn to warn of the coming of Ragnarok.  In any case, when December 12th hits this year, hopefully none of us hears a horn blow.
