Product Description

I design, carve, and cast the pieces myself: they're wholly original. I cast them in modified gypsum (a very strong building material). After the pieces cure, we glaze and seal them. The pieces come boxed, can stand or hang (there's a hook on the back). Each piece comes with a history card stating: "Blessed Fra Angelico (1395-1455) was a Dominican friar who received his name ('Angelic Friar') because of his holiness and his 'rare and perfect talent' as a painter. He painted frescoes, altarpieces, pictures, and other works with singular devotion. In 1982, Pope John Paul II proclaimed Fra Angelico the patron of artists and beatified him 'because of the perfect integrity of his life and the almost divine beauty of the images he painted.' W. M. Rossetti wrote: 'He led the devout and ascetic life of a Dominican friar, and never rose above that rank; he followed the dictates of the order in caring for the poor; he was always good-humored. All of his many paintings were of divine subjects, and it seems that he never altered or retouched them, perhaps from a religious conviction that, because his paintings were divinely inspired, they should retain their original form.... It is averred that he never handled a brush without fervent prayer and he wept when he painted a Crucifixion.' This small statue of Fra Angelico was handmade by Hank Schlau at In the Company of Saints; it was hand painted by Karen Schlau. The piece depicts Fra Angelico at his easel painting with a devotion that can serve as an inspiration both to artists who concentrate on religious subjects and to those who focus their work on a different range of themes."
