This angel, robed in rich blues and greens, was inspired by the beautiful statues in Baroque Cathedrals and images in Renaissance paintings. He is a heavenly messenger with a gold halo and staff accentuated with golden threads and beads. You can keep his message mysterious or add your own special date or thought onto his rolled scroll.
