Inspired by the Classic Italian Botticelli angel, this amulet is meant to guide and protect us. Angels are benevolent creatures, often depicted in art and religion as supernatural spiritual beings, with wings, halos and divine light. According to the philosopher and theologian, Thomas Aquinas, angels are pure form without matter, whose life consists in knowledge and love. Being bodiless, their knowledge is intellectual and not through the senses. The angel measures approximately 5/8" length and 1/2" in width, and is available on 16" or 18" 10K gold chain with a spring ring closure.
