     There's a depiction of a blindfolded and chained angel at the 1:20 mark of this YouTube video of the opening movement to Richard Strauss's Also Sprach Zarathustra. Does anyone here know the name of the portrait and by whom it was painted?
     
       Thank you.

The sun rises every morning and sheds light, vanquishing the night's darkness. The rooster also rises every morning only, unlike the sun, he simply makes noise. But the darkness of the night is dispelled by sunshine, not by the rooster's crowing.The world can use more light and less noise. Where I can, I want to be light.

   Thank you for your rapid reply to my post. I'm sure I've seen that image before; that and the fact that you were able to so quickly post it on this thread must certainly mean that more information is available out there. Again, thank you.

Maybe the angels were helping.  I went to Google Images and the picture just happened to be the very first angel picture on the page.  I didn't see it in color like the video.


To be the first picture was actually amazing with so many pictures showing up in my search.

Now I'm back to being myself.  I did some more looking around in Google, but didn't find out any more.  Good luck with the search. 


Here is a link on Photobucket I just found which has the picture.  Maybe you can contact the person who posted the picture and find out where it came from.

     Thank you once again for your efforts. I'll follow your advice and try to see what I can find out about the source of the picture from the person who originally posted it.
