Angels

I spotted this wonderful sculpture of St Michael on the front of St Michael & All Angels Anglican Church on St Clair Ave W and thought it was quite beautifully done. The congregation began in 1909 and the present building was finished in 1916 and it is a lovely church but unfortunately there is a lot of street furniture and traffic surrounding it so it is difficult to get a good shot of the whole church.

That sculpture is great and I like that it's building right into the wall of the church.

Beautiful archangel!

He looks so sad.

You certainly got a great shot of the sculpture! St. Michael doth appear to be a bit downcast. Probably from watching the antics of humans on earth...

An angel watching down on us!

Love the relief against that brick background. An angel with a sword and shield is not something you see every day!

He looks quite stern.

Angels have swords and shields? Not exactly the way picture heaven.

He does look very stern, but in the Bible the angel Michael did have a tough job. I remember one verse talks about him "contending with the devil" over the body of Moses, and I see another in Revelation that talks about Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon and his angels.

It has a certain Deco feel to it.
