Guardian Angels

acrylic, gesso, paper, natural materials on canvas
Handmade frame by Jesus Alfonso

This is a painting of a spiritual shield. 
Angelic hands encircle the self in the center.  
The lightning arrows are the protective force aided by the angels.  
The stone circle fortifies the shield.  
The cowrie shell is self, encircled by the protection of Guardian Angels.

I came over from IA and this is beautiful. I love the symbolisms and design. The color is warm and loving just what I think of for a guardian angel. Very nice.
This is amazing- I love all the symbolism- very wonderful stuff here!

Thanks for explaining the meaning behind this and that it is a spiritual shield.Awesome!
Yay! Thanks for the lovely words....I wasn't sure if this piece would be a suitable angel, as most depictions are beautiful winged guardians. I guess I wanted to depict the role guardian angels play in our lives, the help and protection they afford if we believe...and I think we ALL need some protection and shielding in this sometimes crazy world! Who says we can't get help from another dimension?

May your guardian angels watch over and guide you on your paths!
