Item details Handmade The entire piece is handmade: I designed and carved the tile/tableau, cast it in modified gypsum with metal powders; I then set the tile in the frame, which is also handmade. The frame is made of modified gypsum and is hand painted. The piece has a hook on the back and is meant to hang. It comes boxed with a history card and the history is also given on a label affixed to the back of the piece. The history card states: "Belief in guardian angels is ancient. The idea is that all individuals�and groups, like families� have a specific spiritual force that guides and protects them through both momentous and ordinary aspects of life. In this tableau a family (a couple, a child, a cat, a dog) are in the midst of their day-to-day lives as two angels, assisted by a wise owl, watch over them, keeping them safe. The piece was handmade by Hank and Karen Schlau at In the Company of Saints in Natchez, MS." Dimensions: 8.25 in. x 8.25 in.
