pentagram and background created by me

 

Puriel is an angel who appears in the apocryphal work of the Testament of Abraham, the second century A.D. apocalyptic tale of Abraham's journey to heaven. Puriel is described as `fiery and pitiless,` and is one of the two angels (along with Dokiel) charged with the task of examining the soul of each person brought to heaven after death.

 

I know that strictly speaking the pentagram is out of place, but I wanted to add a mystic, inclusionary feel to this.
