At the heart of Australia’s cultural life, Mirka Mora drew on the forces of life, love and her personal history. Charismatic, intuitive and infinitely imaginative, she embodied her art, leaving an inimitable legacy in her wake.

This original charcoal and pastel on paper, titled ‘Angel Epiphany With Three Wise Girls’, is populated by Mora’s characters. These characters, droll despite their whimsy, are inspired by Eastern European fairy tales, ancient mythology and angels. They are symbols of joy and resilience, balms for Mora’s experience as a Jewish Holocaust survivor.

Angel Epiphany With Three Wise Girls’ melds personal and cultural mythology. Illustrated in Lesley Harding and Kendrah Morgan's 'Mirka & Georges: A Culinary Affair', it is a treasure for collectors of modern art, fans of Mora and her legacy, or just the dreamer within. Go on, add some joie de vivre to your collection.
