#384 Angel Sculpture Globe

Acquired 2004

A study in contrasts, this hand-crafted white bisque porcelain sculpture features a glossy, almost iridescent, angel forming a protective haven for a matte-finished depiction of the Holy Family. A bulb inserted in the back casts a serene glow over the scene when lit. I found this elegant, unusual piece in the Abbey Press catalog, October 2004. Purchase price, $42.95.
