One of my favorite aspects of the design of the angel is that they can be displayed several ways; they can be hung on a tree or placed on a table. I created the body of the angel to be open and curved, in a welcoming, non-threatening posture. In almost every appearance of an angel to a human recorded in the Bible, the first thing the angel says is “Do not be afraid”. Although angels were a fearsome creature to behold, their greetings were welcoming and comforting and their presence a message of hope. In much of Christian art, angels are depicted as a symbol of comfort and peace - I do hope that my version evokes a deep hope and assurance that we are seen and loved by our Heavenly Father.
