DescriptionCast by hand in the Wild Goose Studio, Kinsale, County Cork, Ireland. This Irish Guardian Angel has an outer shell of pure bronze with an inner core of cast resin material for stability. Each Wild Goose piece is made entirely by hand, with no two being exactly alike.
Since ancient times, bronze has been a highly prized metal for the making of tools, jewelry and statues. It is an alloy of copper, which was first mined in Ireland over 4000 years ago. Left to weather, it will acquire a green patina; polished it will shine like gold.
This guardian angel in prayer is an original design by Joanna Scott-McCarthy and is ready for hanging as a guardian of home and family. "Tradition teaches us that each of us has an angel, that we are not on our own. When loneliness or helplessness overcomes us, it is time to call on our angel for help and courage."
Approximately 6 inches wide, and 3/4 inch thick at the point of greatest depth.
