Angel Wings
Angel Wings
Price $850

The original pair came from an Abbey in Florence. This picture shows one of our replicas hanging high up in the back storeroom at our shop. They really do look amazing!

These wings are cast in the traditional manner, using plaster, scrim and horsehair. Each pair is painted and gently aged, so that the finished article looks both magnificent and serene.

The wings are approximately life sized! For those of you unfamiliar with angels, this is about 42 inches high, 26 inches wide and about 12 inches in depth. Each pair is a little different and any measurement may vary by up to 2 inches.
