The Story

In this hand-tinted photograph, a large guardian angel statue stands before a large stone cross. Her wide wings are spread and this angel’s color is that of weathered and tarnished copper.

She stands tall overlooking a peaceful and scenic cemetery. Amazingly, those bronze wings are eleven feet across! The entire piece is quite tall and imposing, and in my opinion, a beautiful and great example of high-end sculpting skill and ability. I estimate her to be around 100 years old.

I took the original color photograph and modified it to appear aged and faded, but did nothing to add to the natural weathering on this guardian angel.
