A signed and framed limited edition canvas on board of 95 by popular contemporary artist Hamish Blakely, entitled Leave of Abstinence.

"Are  young people less spiritual than their forebears? What would the ripple effects be in Heaven? If they are not called upon as often as they used to be, what happens if angels become redundant?

There is a saint-like trance that belies the actions of this fallen angel. Rather than being in a state of deep inebriation, her demeanour echoes the religious paintings of the Renaissance and Baroque era."

- Hamish Blakely
