Description "Benediction" by Daniel Chester French


"With both arms raised in blessing, an angel is stepping forward. An ample cloak is thrown over the slightly bowed head and wrapped around the form, falling in a loose fold over one shoulder and standing out in a wide curve behind the other arm. Great soft-feathered wings spread in a tender sweep behind outstretched arms." (Proske 20)
