"And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us." -Luke 2:15
Originally inspired by frescoes and murals of angels in Florence, Italy, this painting is of an angel at the advent of Christ’s birth. She is meant to depict the profound love, awe, and understanding of Christ’s mission and sacrifice for us. This may also represent a young woman in a quiet moment of prayer and contemplation.
