Angel On My Shoulder by Don Kloetzke

Angel On My Shoulder by Don Kloetzke

Angel On My Soldier is a very unique piece of religious art that is rich with symbolism. The artist painted an actual statue of a guardian angel watching over the resting place of an eleven year old girl named Mamie, (there since 1873) to represent the hope of new life and a future for women with breast cancer.

The broken wing of the beautiful antique angel symbolizes the lost breast as a result of breast cancer, and the female cardinal on the angel’s shoulder symbolizes new life and hope for the future. The lovely shades of green can also be seen as a symbol of life in this poignant religious art piece.
