An Angel

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION!I should have researched this before I posted the photo! I just called the church, and I was told that the anchor is the official logo of the church. It is a symbol of HOPE and ties in with the name of the church itself. The anchor and rope, combined with HH (House of Hope) is frequently used with church literature.

This guardian angel rests on the front lawn of House of Hope Presbyterian Church on Summit Avenue, looking after the parishoners and passersby as well.

  3. In Paris, I like to go to the Musée Rodin (a little museum about Rodin and Camille Claudel, my favourite, in a very nice garden, do you know it?), there is a showcase where the technique of wax and bronze is explained. Now I know a little more how the sculptor works, I look to your statue with another eye!

  7. Nice photo, Kate. I like the background too. Nice homes and lawns.

    My post today explains about a duck's sexual habits. Not sure if I should label it with an "X" or not.

  14. Well yes, an anchor does seem an appropriate symbol for a church. I'd never thought of that before.
