Angel Collection

The Angel Collection by Gallery Byzantium.

Perhaps the best-known of Christian symbols, the angel is a common figure in art, literature, and other works.  The word “angel” is derived from the Greek word “angelos,” or “messenger,” which essentially sums up the angel’s meaning as a symbol.
Angels are the spiritual messengers that interact with humans on God’s behalf.  As messengers, they bring important news and communications to Earth.  However, unlike their cherub-esque depictions, angels themselves are noncoporeal, bodiless spirits.  Their depiction as physical beings is simply a way to make an ethereal symbol tangible.
