This pretty little angel figurine graces the window of a local merchant's shop. She is looking out for the pedestrians on the sidewalk outside the shop, and holds a candle that she can light if anyone needs their way illuminated. I think she is beautiful & precious, and I was delighted to find her one night sometime ago.
Some people who look at the world with cold, hard logic may doubt the existence of angels, and perhaps they are, indeed, figments of the human imagination. However, so many cultures over the millennia have posited the existence of fairies, sidhe, apsaras, nymphs, dryads, animae, ancestral spirits, and other energies which cohabit the universe that one has to wonder. I think, perhaps, on metaphysical subjects as well as scientific subjects, we have only begun to scratch the surface of what is truly around us.
