An Angel and a Bird
Meekness and love are the traits that you cannot conceal: people, animals, and birds can always feel them. St. John Chrysostom used to say that meekness makes us equal to Angels.
The meek Angel with a bird in his hand is just a way to show your affection to a loved one and to wish them to grow in love and virtue.
This Angel is a fused glass gift made in our Glass Workshop. Transparent and opaque pieces of heat-resistant glass are polished and then placed one onto another in several layers and then baked in a special kiln for 24 hours to become an exquisite and amazing gift. Each Angel is then painted by hand using acrylic paints.
This souvenir is 17.5 cm tall.
If handled with care, glass products will last almost forever. Decades after they were made, their colors remain bright and brilliant. Humidity, temperature fluctuations or exposure to sunlight won't damage them.
Each item is unique and may be slightly different from the one shown in the photo.
