Angels & Cherubs
When you display angel statues, they invite religious undertones into your decor. However, they can also evoke feelings of serenity and peace. Angels are often used in sculptural work for their childlike features, and they have a special meaning in both Judaism and Christianity. In Judaism, cherubim guard God’s glory on earth and by his throne in heaven, while in Christianity, they represent protection.
Cherubim are a special type of angel that first appear in the Bible in the third chapter of Genesis. They are winged creatures with the faces and bodies of children, referred to as putto (plural putti) in Greco-Roman classical art. They are associated with Eros, the Greek god of love and sex, and they appear in both religious and secular art.
The Cybis studio has produced numerous angels and cherubs since its 1940s origins in New York. An intriguing example from that period is the Papka Angel Kneeling which has a pastel fresco decoration of soft pink, blue, mauve, and yellow and is 11″ high. Another is the 4.5″ high Angel with Pigtails. This was cast from a Holland mold and bears traces of the design number in faded grease pencil.
After a 15-year gap in new angel introductions, the 1986 Angel Ornament appeared. It is 6″ high and sold in white bisque for $325 and color for $375. A different version of this same sculpture, with a baby in the cradle, was produced as a giftware piece called Baby in Cradle.
Garden angels are perfect decorative elements that can transform your property into a beautiful oasis. They come in a variety of sizes and styles, from the classical to modern. While they’re primarily designed to add class and elegance to the landscape, most of them can also serve as functional elements.
One of the most popular types of garden angels are those made of resin. These are inexpensive and can be painted in a variety of colors. They can also be sculpted to closely resemble marble. In addition, many of them are equipped with LED lights that can be turned on at twilight. They can illuminate the garden for up to 8 hours and are a great choice to decorate flower beds or memorials.
Those who prefer a more classic look should consider concrete garden angels. They are less expensive than resin but they are very durable. Moreover, they can be decorated with moss graffiti to achieve an aged style.
Some garden angels are crafted of stone, which is a luxurious material. These statues are often more expensive than those made of resin and concrete. Nevertheless, they’re easy to pair with most landscapes and decors. Besides, they can be used to decorate a fountain or even serve as a support for a trellis. Other types of garden angels are crafted from glass. They are often smaller than their resin counterparts and can be used as a centerpiece decoration in a flower bed or as characters in fairy gardens.
Memorial angels honor those who have passed with a loving tribute and a reminder that they are in heaven. They are often depicted with a cardinal, as it is said that when cardinals appear, a loved one has passed on.
This angel can be hung on a tree or kept at home as a remembrance of your departed family member or friend. It features a slot for your personalized message and is laser cut from 1/4 birch wood. A beautiful and touching way to remember your lost loved ones at Christmas.
These angels make a heartwarming gift for those who have lost someone close to their hearts, especially during the holidays. They also make a wonderful gift for grieving children or adults who have lost a child. The engraved sentiment reminds them that “their angels are watching them.”
The Western ideas about angels can be traced back to the biblical Bible and the worldviews of its monotheistic authors, Garrett says. That includes the idea that people are assigned one good angel and one bad angel to guide them through their lives. The good and evil angels may also be based on a belief from ancient polytheistic beliefs that were replaced by the more monotheistic beliefs in the Bible, she adds. Regardless, many of us believe that we can find hope in the midst of difficult times through the power of our angels.
Angel statues foster whimsy or serious contemplation, making them popular garden art pieces. Some feature a chubby-cheeked cherub holding a baby, while others have a kneeling or seated angel with open wings in a prayer pose.
These statues are also great for decorating your home or office. Many retailers offer a variety of angel sculptures by artists including Karen Hahn and Jim Shore. The former creates elegant angel figurines with luxurious gowns and special meanings, while the latter offers a number of angels with scrolled messages on their lower half.
Some angel statues come with a natural stone base for display. The best base for a particular statue will be selected by the company and shipped with the figure. If the chosen base is unavailable, a similar one may be substituted. Decorative and memorial statues can be shipped internationally. Customers should inquire about rates and customs duties in their country of origin.
The largest-ever sculpture of an angel is the Angel of the North in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear, England. It is a contemporary art work by Antony Gormley, which was completed in 1998 and stands 20 metres (66 ft) tall. It is a landmark for the region and is seen by an estimated 33 million people every year. It was constructed from COR-TEN weathering steel, which has a naturally oxidized colour and appearance.
