Angel of the Month
The Angel of Love

Author of Angels of Paris - An Architectural Tour through the History of Paris
High up on the wall of a former mansion, now museum, Gerard Van Obstal’s enigmatic low-relief stone sculpture features allegorical messages true for all time. A little naked curly-haired angel symbolizes Love. Tender, innocent, devoid of all attributes, he reaches towards Abundance – a generously-draped figure carrying a horn of plenty bursting with fruits and flowers – as if seeking more. The angel of Love turns away from Prudence, a metaphor for the anticipation of the future.
Musée Carnavalet, Rue des Francs-Bourgeois at the corner of rue Sevigné, 3rd arrondissement (Metro: Chemin Vert or St Paul)
