Artist's Description

While not a religious person myself, I admire the aesthetic and technical quality of some religious statuary.

This statue sits atop the Chapel of St Michael the Archangel at Rookwood Necropolis in Sydney.

Images of angels fit within the gammut of archetypal characters used by society to portray certain qualities.

I think this role as an archetypal figure far exceeds their role as a religious symbol.

I am not certain, though I wouldn’t be surprised to find that the archetype of the Angel pre-dates our organised religions.
