"The Choir" is my Senior Thesis project. It is a series of illustrations featuring the 9 orders of the Christian Hierarchy of Angels, as organized by the early Christian scholar Dionysius the Areopagite. This series was created over a two-semester period in the spring and fall of 2020. The orders are as follows, ranked from highest to lowest:

1. Seraphim 

2. Cherubim

3. Thrones

4. Dominions

5. Virtues

6. Powers

7. Principalities

8. Archangels

9. Angels
