Miniature Celtic Angel-Guardian Angel-Wood Carved Christmas Ornament by Signs of Spirit

MEANING: An angel is a supernatural being or spirit, often depicted in human form with wings and halos around their head, found in several religions and mythologies.  They are known as benevolent celestial beings who act as intermediaries between Heaven and Earth. Other roles of angels include acting as Guardian Spirits, a guiding influence or carrying out God’s tasks.  

Several religions regard angels as spirits. In Hebrew, the Quran and the Christian Bibles, they are often depicted as messengers of God.  The term "angel" has also been expanded to various notions of spirits found in many other religious traditions. Other roles of angels include protecting and guiding human beings, and carrying out God's tasks.

This is a mini version of Coop's wood carved Celtic Angel. 

We tie a ribbon through the halo for hanging.  While they are wonderful for year round decoration, on a wall, in a window, over a cradle...and they also make wonderful Christmas Tree Ornaments!

There are pictures with both sizes shown so you can see the difference...this listing is for the wee one!

THE WOOD CARVING: Our carvings are single pieces of western red cedar, designed and carved to be wall hangings.  Each piece is finished with a blend of clear oils that brings out the natural color of the wood.  For more information on the process of creation, please see my profile.

SIZE: One picture has the piece on a quilting board, lined up on the 1 inch marks. The quilting board, at its simplest, is a board that has 1 inch marks going up the sides and across the top and bottom. So it is a one inch grid. We’ve PhotoShopped Green lines going to the left and bottom from the tallest/widest points, giving you height and width...but wait! It's not that easy! The way this board I have is laid out, if I lined it up on the zero points it would cover up the numbers and on some pieces you wouldn't be able to see them...so, I line it up on the 1 inch marks which means when you get the numbers, you have to subtract 1 inch... TA DA! Measurements may vary slightly from piece to piece.

 

The pictures you see here are stock photos. What you get will depend on what we have in stock. If there are no others in stock, the time to shipping will be increased. If you desire and request something (for example) dark, I will pull the darkest board I have, but it will not necessarily be as dark as (for example) walnut would be. Western Red Cedar is the species from which roofing shingles, decks, and gazeboes have traditionally been made. It is resistant to mold, moisture, and insects. The oiling process also helps to block out damaging UV rays of the sun, so my carvings can be hung outdoors. Please be aware, that even with the oiling, the carving will eventually gray out, as any cedar will, if it is placed in direct sunlight.

 SIZE OF THE CARVINGS: The stock carvings are limited by the size of the board that starts the carving process. As the initial piece is 1 in. x 12 in., (in reality 3/4 in. x 11-3/4 in.) one side of the carving will be no greater then approximately 11-1/2 in.
