Angels are heavenly creatures with both divine and human features. They are the spiritual messengers of God, intermediaries between the heaven and earth, our protectors. In Christianity an angel is considered a carrier of the divine message for people that is why they are depicted as human beings, bare-headed, wearing long, soft clothing, bare-feet or with sandals. In the traditional Lithuanian sculpture angels are rarely depicted single, more usually angels are a part of the group compositions. Angles from the collection of the Lithuanian Art Museum are displayed in this virtual exhibition.
