I found this collapsed church near the corner of Peniston and Baronne Streets. It was probably suffering from termite problems, but the storm winds literally blew it down. In the midst of the ruins was a statue of an angel, missing a wing, but upright. I found it inspirational. I felt it was important to the spiritual renewal of the city to have a piece like this in the Storm Cycle series.
