Copper Vine Angel

Wood Wall Sculpture

(ID: A96286)
Created by Elizabeth Frank
This is part of a series called Lost and Found Angels. It's inspired in part by the carved wooden angels that reside in an old church in the artist's city. An original Spanish mission, the church is nicknamed the White Dove of the Desert. In the church, there are frescoes of angels painted on the ceilings. Carved angels and saints are suspended from the walls. Much of the artwork has been damaged over time and, although beautiful restorations have been done, it is still a bit weathered inside. It is a place of mystery and sanctuary.

This piece is carved from found aspen branches collected in the mountains. The wings are made from antique ceiling tin. There is an antique skeleton key nailed in the center of the body and a Mexican milagro nailed in the heart. The delicate leaf pattern on the body is painted with acrylic.This angel has a crown of carved vines. The piece is coated with wax to protect it. There is a hook on the back for hanging. This is a limited production original artwork. It is signed on the back.

Each piece is one of a kind. Found materials, and gesture of wood will vary.
