When I traveled to Ireland and went to some of the ornate churches, in the churchyard there were many beautifully carved wings and faces in the decorations of the buildings.
This little emblem reminds me of those angels, their tiny faces looking down from columns and across from doorways.
And also decorative ornaments on french renaissance furniture, the crowns and wings speaking of the politics and religion of the time.
Like little girl's furniture, painted white with carved angels on the headboards and the crowns of the moulding decorating the closet doors.
Faux-tiques - reminders of the real antiques, created to evoke and capture a mood.
The reverse side has french script writing, like music notations, elegant yet faded in a light burgundy lavender color.
