“Transcendence” Poster, 24x36”

In this inspirational poster, a statue of the archangel Gabriel holds a horn and points up toward Heaven, colorful clouds billowing in the sky behind him. Beautify any room with this piece of angel art, perfect for a variety of home decor styles, including Victorian, cottage, vintage, farmhouse, rustic, Boho, and modern.

Symbolism

One of the most popular angels, the archangel Gabriel is best known as a messenger of God who delivers prophecies and carries out God’s will.

Christian literature and art often depicts Gabriel holding a horn, interpreting him as the angel who blows a trumpet to announce Christ’s return to earth and the resurrection of the dead.

In cemeteries, however, Gabriel’s horn symbolizes the soul’s ascent from earth to Heaven.

This Gabriel statue re-emphasizes that idea with his finger pointing up as well. (Perhaps this grave’s resident was doubly worthy?)

While Gabriel figures prominently in Christianity, Judaisim, and Islam, the major reasons for his importance differ:

* Christians venerate the Annuciation, when Gabriel visited the Virgin Mary to announce that she would bear God’s son, Jesus.

* Judaism views Gabriel as the protector of Israel.

* In Islam, Gabriel (Jibril) revealed Allah’s teachings to the Prophet Muhammed; these teachings became the Qu’ran.

Gabriel’s gender is not wholly agreed upon. Though generally regarded as male, he’s often portrayed androgenously (as in this statue) and occasionally seen as female.

Many people include Gabriel in their prayers or pray to him directly.
