A Memoir by your Director of Social Media
Before Christianity, there were the Goddess figures, and the images that appear in early Judaism and Islam. Many of these appear in illuminations and mosaics. There are many representaitons of Buddha and Asian deities, the ancient world's Greco-Roman figures and statues, and of course, the Ancient Egyptian representation of the gods, often Ushabti. There are angel museums in Beloit, WI, and many avid angel and Christmas collectors and clubs all over the world. The Metropolitan Museum's Renaissance and 18th century angels, featured on magnificent trees also have many fans.
Myself, I have more angels, Christmas dolls, and figures than I can count and I love them all. I have aobut 100 Nativites from all over the world, some miniscule, others jewelry, some dolls with clothing, and of course, my Woolworths figures that started it all.
