Gaze into the Mirror

Last week, in Yet Mercy Intervened wips, we focussed on wips of Love, as shown below.

Love stands, holding a cloth but why? Grace kneels down, casting a caring gaze but for whom? Justice comes from the right, holding scales, with a ruler to strike down justified judgment, but for what? In the way, Mercy hovers, intervening, but for whom? Today, we explore wips of the last character in the picture, us.

For Justice demands recompense, the scales must be satiated:

Just like his locks, Justice descends and will not be stopped:

So who will pay the debt?

Lastly, as we gaze in the mirror, let’s take one more look at the stage and its characters:

A Love to Cover All

Last week in Yet Mercy Intervened wips, we focused on Grace and her flowing locks. Now we will turn back to Love. We left her in her stern stone Weeping angel form–Let’s fix that:
