The term "angel" denotes a class of beings who are not usually perceived by human senses. Angels were created at some point before the physical universe. They apparently do no age and do not die. they are compared to spirit and fire.
Psalm 104:4 Who makes His angels spirits, his ministers a flame of fire. (servants)
However, angels do appear in some sort of visible bodies frequently to serve as God's messenger's or to intervene in human events on behalf of God or His people. They do not marry or reproduce. People do not become angels when they die.
Humans were created lower than the angels. ( This implies man's mortal and earthbound existence.) But will judge angels in the age to come.
All angels are not alike. There seems to be rank among angels. Satan was an exalted angel before he rebelled against God. (Isaiah 14:12-15) How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground. You who weakened nations.
A few angels are called archangels or identified with personal names. The Seraphim and the cherubim probably are angelic beings of rank. When they are visible, their appearance is distinctive from humankind and radiantly glorious. Cherubim and seraphim are the only angelic beings described as having wings, Although Gabriel was said to fly.
So what this all got to do with art exactly? You appear to be god's loyal spammer. The message trumps the generally held
conventions for these forums.
