salaam! yes, i have a few beautiful ones saved in my computer files, but-am unable to post them -they come up as x's as most of my graphics!! but if you go to African art shows, festivals, shops-you will find many beauty angels of lovely hues of browns. A internet seach may pull up images as well!
salam Jean! what lovely angels!! where and how did you find them?? I searched, and searched, and the best i could find was the sites listed!! These are esquissite!! I need tolearn how to do more specific graphic searches..its been one ofmy tech. weaknesses!!
I GO TO SOME OF MY FAVORITE SITES AND ASK THE OWNERS OF THOSE SITES IF THEY HAVE DARK SKIN ANGELS. SOME DO AND THEY WON'T POST THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE HARD TO GET. I WILL POST WHATEVER I CAN FIND. YOU MAY SNAG THEM IF YOU WISH
I have been watching for dark skin angels since I received a Christmas card through World Vision from my little girl, Kigue, in Africa. All the main figures in the nativity scene are dark skinned. It's the first card I have seen like this, and it's beautiful! I have not seen any ancient records or documentation that says all angels have long flowing blonde hair!
After I read Astro's and A'isha's messages, I have to admit that I became a little obsessive! You are right... there are many figurines, etc., but very few and hard-to-find angel-type pictures. I'm happy to report that I have found the dark-skinned angel AND CHILDREN version of the well known Bridge Angel ~ so here's both of them. I wonder if the same artist did it. (for snagging )
Aren't they gorgeous?!
Here are a few other pics. I managed to find some time ago:
Well, I searched everywhere for one little angel girl and it looks as though she's hiding! Picture is on hard drive so I'll post it soon.
Thanks Jean, for permission to 'snag' those fabulous new pictures!
