The Virgin with Angels, 1900
Wiliiam Adolphe Bouguereau

I actually enjoy relion art for some reason. Anything that has to do with angels, and the virgin. But im not very religious myself.


  1. Interesting ("not very religious" - but enjoying religious art). Angels...look for the film 'Wings of Desire', by the German director Wim Wenders. Let me know if you can't locate this!
    What can you tell us about the images you chose - and why? How are angels represented in other faiths?

  2. i like this image of the angels because its very loving. To me it shoes innocence, purity and happiness. I just view it as protection. I just think that the the saying tat some thing good is watching over u is true. I guess it brings me peace? And i really dont know how faith is represented in other faiths.I know many other people dont believe in angels. I was raised as a catholic and from what i know angels are protectors. They watch over us. Guardian angels is what i believe they call them. And their massengers to God.
