Stone Angel

I have been stitching on the above for a week or two now and, until today, could only see a giant sloth with wings.  She is another angel keeping watch over the souls who restfully lay (I hope) on Myrtle Hill in Rome, Georgia.  You can see her sisters painted in oil in a previous post.   (I am not sure you ever saw the final paintings….)  I remember learning about sloths as a kid and found them rather fascinating.  Imagine lumbering along at a snail’s pace.  The older I get, the more I feel I do!  Our Renaissance images of angels look different than the ones described in the Old Testament, I wonder if God ever thought about making them look like sloths.

To the creator of the beautiful marble image this work has inspired – Your angel is lovely and in no way looks like a sloth in person.  I hope you would be pleased at my rendition of her.
