My Interpretation of the Ophanim WIP

View the remains of the finished Ophanim 1 Pot here.

Back in May, someone compared my Triangular Eye Pot to an image of the (an?) Ophanim, an order of angelic beings from Jewish mythology which translates as "Thrones."  They're referenced in the song "God Save the People" from Godspell:  "Not Thrones and Crowns but men."  (They're probably also referenced the Gospel of Matthew on which Godspell is very loosely based, but I'm a lot more comfortable with 70s musicals than the Bible.)  The image consisted of two overlapping circles covered with eyes and wings.  This pot is my interpretation of the Ophanim.
