Description Originally this colorful angel was attached to a reliquary shrine or an altar frontal, of which very few have survived intact. He kneels in a pose of submission and reverence, suggesting he was one of a pair of angels flanking the Virgin or Christ, or the archangel Gabriel from an Annunciation scene.
