African American angel figurines are among the most sought after of cherished angel collectibles, so it’s no surprise that almost every African American collectible line includes an angel or two.
This makes searching for your perfect angel interesting and fun! Think about what you want – is it an elegant graceful angel, an angel wrapped in flowing billowing Victorian robes, a frilly angel, or perhaps a stern sentinel angel, summoning God’s forces to battle evil. Whatever your vision, you’ll likely find it if you look.
An angel from the LittleAfrica line is certain to be covered in voluminous robes, so that only the head, and sometimes the hands, can be seen. The variety however, makes it possible to imagine a collection of several of these beautiful angels.
“Asha,” (meaning life) is robed in copper and gold satin with an elegant turban, lacey white wings, and a scepter. The 16 inch “Hattie Angel,” another of the LittleAfrica angel figurines, is dressed in gold brocade and rippling ribbons with feathery wings and black curly hair.
If you’re looking for the sentinel African American guardian angel, with all of God’s power at his command, you’ll find him in Thomas Blackshear’s Ebony Visions collection. “The Sentinel” stands on an outcrop of rock dressed in white robes with a razor sharp spear in his hand. Generously adorned with gold trimmings and jewelry, he is at once African and Godly.
His wings are held precisely behind him, and he regards the scene before him with a serious but serene expression. This African American angel can protect you from anything. One of the few figurines in the Blackshear figurine line, he definitely stands out from the rest.
Then there are the Willow Tree angels by designed by Susan Lordi. A beautiful line of willowy spiritual and inspiring angels, they include African American angel designs that are a pleasure to behold. The Willow Tree “Angel of the Spirit” piece depicts a praying angel in a cream colored gown with the signature wire loop wings so typical of Willow Tree angels.
Of all the African American angel figurines, this is surely one of the most collectible – artistic and very reasonably priced. It would make a tasteful African American guardian angel for your mantel or nightstand.
