These beautiful angel figurines, hand carved and hand painted by a truly talented Guatemalan artisan, are the perfect Christmas collectibles. They would look lovely on a Christmas tree (they are hollowed out inside, meaning they can be Christmas tree toppers) or as decoration on a shelf or mantlepiece. As a gift, each figurine would make a beautiful guardian angel statue. Because they are made of pine wood, they are light and easy to find a place for, and also sturdy enough to be a good gift for a child, rather than a ceramic or glass statue that can break easily. The removable wings are also a wonderful feature, because they mean that these angel statues can be stored easily without fear of breakage.
If you use the angel only for Christmas, bringing it out each year and placing it in a place of honor can become one of your Christmas ornament traditions. Because their coloring is not the traditional Christmas colors, these angel statues can be used as Christmas house ornaments, or be used year-round. The colorful patterns, which are never exactly the same, are appealing to everybody who loves bright, bold colors - especially children. The artist who crafts these angels loves flowers, so he usually includes a floral pattern in his decorations.
These angels will bring a smile to your face, however and whenever you choose to decorate with them.
