Two Dove Angel-MADE TO ORDER
Two Dove Angel is part of a series inspired 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. It's a place of peace, and sanctuary.
This angel is carved from found aspen branches collected in the mountains of the Southwestern US. The wings are made from antique ceiling tin. There is an antique watch face nailed in the center of the body and a Mexican milagro nailed in the heart. It's delicately hand painted with acrylic. It's crowned with a twig, carved leaves, flowers, doves and vintage tin. At the tip of each dove's tail and wing there's an application of metal leaf to enhance the iridescence of the paint. The piece is coated with wax to protect it. There is a hook on the back to hang it. This is a limited production design. Each angel is unique. The colors style and design remain consistent while the found materials and gesture of the wood will vary. Orders will ship in approx. 8 -10 weeks.
