This month, we go afield to see the unique, smiling angel of Reims. A stone sculpture carved between 1236 and 1245, it stands in the north portal of the west façade of the cathedral. The angel suffered damage by a German shell in 1914, when the head broke into several pieces. Repaired and restored, this icon for the French wartime propaganda effort was considered a "symbol of French culture destroyed by German barbarism." It is one of the best-loved angels in France.
