|Angel, The Huron Carol|
Here is Cimabue's Madonna Enthroned with Angels and Prophets: Inclined head, three quarter profile, straight nose, wide eyes, small mouth, the Infant's profile a mirror image, the angels echoing the Madonna's features and pose.
|Cimabue, Madonna Enthroned with Angels and Prophets, 1285-86|
|Wilton Diptych, 1395-1399|
|Madonna and Child with Angels, Fra Angelico, 1395/1400-1455|
|Madonna and Child with Singing Angels, Sandro Botticelli 1445-1510|
And that, dear readers, is why I painted the angels in the Huron Carol like this:

"The angel song rang loud and high"
