"Stately Angel"

I bought this to add to my Christmas ornaments but somehow this angel stays out all year.

"A beautiful piece - Watching over the Holy Family"

So glad to see this angel is available again. When I bought her several years ago, she was the last one. She stands guard watching over my Holy Family - also from Central America. She has also been featured on the Communion table at church during advent. A very striking piece and beautifully made.

"Perfect for my grandkids!"

I love how colorful the set is. I bought it so my grandchildren could move the characters around & I could teach them the nativity story. I know this will be a memory maker for them.
