Forty golden Guardian Angels are resting on swings outside St. Paul’s Cathedral.
The piece creates a strong conceptual and visual link to the Cathedral in general and the golden cross on top of the dome in particular.
The rich interior and ornamental nature of the cathedral and the architecture around is reflected by the intricate detail of the sculptural Angel.
It is an emotional and imaginative work that is aiming to make people think and smile.
After all in this particular time Guardian Angels deserve some rest
