Angel Statue Serve as God's Messenger

Angels, as benevolent airy beings, are in almost all religions in some form. In the Christian religion they are messengers from God and can intercede in human life for the better. There are four main angels Gabriel, Michael, Raphael and Uriel. People consider some angels as departed loved ones who are watching over their lives. Angel statues depict all types of angels from St. Michael, fearsome and powerful, worthy to stand in front of a law enforcement agency, to innocent children with wings that sit on mushrooms and contemplate your garden.


Praying or meditative angel statues are usually seen in cemeteries as symbols of the angels who escort the soul to heaven. Another angel is, the Christmas angel who has come to see baby Jesus and is usually depicted in a nativity scene. There are garden statues of beautiful little girls with wings who hold bouquets of flowers or giant shells for bird baths. There are very small statues of children and babies who can sit on a window sill or desk and watch you work.

Some have a contemporary design, sleek and modern. Cherubs are a popular motif for fountains. Little angels are pouring water, playing with shells or sea horses while the fountain splashes water giving a soothing appearance and sound. They also hold flower pots, lights and birds.
