Angel



The so-called 'Angel with the Golden Hair': a Russian icon, from the Novgorod school, mid to late 12th century. Keep looking. It's a deeply strange and beautiful image.

Hey, yeh very beautiful. One thing that puzzles me though is if it's a male or female impersonation I mean look at it - the face has both male and female characteristics at the same time...
