This quote is from the book Shaken, on the last page when Joshua leaves his father to be evacuated back to Canada from the earthquake. The quote is a metaphor, and refers to Philippe who kept Joshua and Naomi safe while they were traveling to the embassy. I think that this quote has many connections to real life, as even in the worst scenarios and the most difficult of challenges, there is always hope to guide you to success. In this case, I think that hope is represented by Philippe. Hell is the aftermath of the earthquake, and the angel is hope. The background has a person holding onto a piece of rope that comes from the "light", while descending into "hell", which is represented by the red ground and red trees. The whole piece is abstract so that you can imagine more than you can see.
