Default Symbolic

So I got the iPhone 4S for my personal cell (still have android for work).


Here is a picture of the case I purchased for it.


This is my wallpaper:




Nobody I have spoken with seems to get the meaning. What do you think it means?

Angel externally
Demon lurking within

You're on the right track, but it's less literal than the direction I think you're heading.

I was going to say angel, but he's got a sword...lol. I wasn't going figuratively as well.

Destruction as a means to justice?

The angel's expression is less apparent than the demon's smile?

Hmm, no other guesses.

The Angel is Tyrael and is the Archangel of Justice
The demon is Diablo, the Prime Evil

Yes, these are both characters from a game, but that has less meaning than the representation.

The symbolic meaning refers to the duality of man. I see this from an observer standpoint reflecting on my own actions and of those I know and meet.
