There's a well that connects heaven with the human world, and at times the little angels get bored of all the goody goody angels around them, and peep over to see what's going on on earth.

Shame they don't notice a little potential intruder! 

Loosely inspired by a fresco by Mantegna - ceiling of the Camera Picta - Mantua (where angels, people and a peacock are depicted as peeping down a hole in the ceiling)

Just noticed the sparkle... wished the other dusties were sparkling too.  Super-cute entry.

@ Johno, TreLeCoco, Raeli: thank you :D 

@ Blackbeltdude: glad it reminded you of it, Mantegna's is a lovely fresco that I studied in high school and I was hoping others would recognise the inspiration ;D They're Putti, yes :D

 those little chibi angels are sooo precious! they seriously bring out the girly-girl in me. haha

all that aside, I love the perspective and the dithered rainbow is a really cool effect!

Wow that looks great ^^ The dithering really suits this image alot :) So bright and colourful

Heh, that fresco is the first thing that popped into my head when I saw this!

Maybe you outta call those angels, "Pooti." ;)

Definitly a cool way to make use of the challenge guidlines!

The colouring on this piece is amazing :D The ivy was a nice touch and I especially like the mix of blue and white on the wings of the angels.
