Sunday Church Series - Fear Not


 Birmingham's Cordray Parker  created this beautifiul angel.  It sits on the rooftop of St. Mary's on the Highlands Episcopal Church. I've held onto it for a really long time. I think I need to go at another time of day and try to capture a better image. We'll see.

An angel on the church roof!
"Fear not" is how angels always greeted Bible people, no?

Quite a fantastic angel! A lovely church detail for Sacred Sunday!

Ya, I'd love to see more detail in her.

Bird, I agree. I need to go back when the light is different. Very hard to shoot because of the light and you are shooting up at her.

Looks suspiciously like an escapee from the allegorical mob in Mayence

This reminds me so much of a life size sculpture I saw on a railing by the Danube in Budapest. Both are beautiful.
