"Angel"

Photograph By Courtesy Chloé Trujillo

The "Angel" was the first board Trujillo ever painted. "The painting includes the five elements: earth, fire, wind (ether), water and void," she says. "The angel is divinely protected by the Eye of Horus, between heaven and Earth, these eyes representing all six senses. My husband, coming back from touring Australia, said, 'Wow, that angel looks like Andy Irons.' Andy passed away a few days later. Bless his soul; may that board be an homage to him and to what surfing really is."
