strange but beautiful sketches
Ange aux pieds posés sur le soleil
Sketched in the Musée Carnavalet, Paris. Original sculpture 1542 by Pierre Berton.
Ange assis sur un disque solair. It seems to me that there are certain ideal types in art, the youth, male and female, being two of them. If we met real angels, wouldn't they be thousands of years old? No doubt angels are subject to different laws, such that they get younger as their ability to serve increases.
