Wounded Angel

If you are a Sirenia Digest subscriber, you shall likely recall that the cover image for #24 was The Wounded Angel by Finnish symbolist Hugo Simberg (1903). Indeed, The Wounded Angel is the National Painting of Finland.

I'd heard the song, being a fan of Nightwish, but had not seen the video, and I thank alvyarin for bringing it to my attention. And I shall now bring it to your attention. It's gorgeous.
