Angel of the Month

December’s angel smiles on an historiated panel saved from the Saint Etienne Cathedral, formerly at the site of Notre Dame. It’s the year 1146, the time of the Second Crusades; King Childebert kneels on the right, unfurling a banner. A crowned Mary, holding a scepter, is seated on a model of the holy city of Jerusalem. On her lap, the child Jesus opens a little book symbolizing the Scriptures. Striding forward, an angel with large feathery wings, elegantly attired in a tiered gown and embroidered mantle, swings an incense burner, waving the prayers of the faithful up to heaven.
