Li'l St Gabriel by HiloHello Li'l St Gabriel by HiloHello
NAME: Hebrew, means "God is my strength" and/or "man of God"

CHARACTERISTICS AND ACTIVITY: Divine messenger

PATRON OF: Those who work in communications and telecommunications; radio operators; postal workers; ambassadors; journalists; couriers; stamp collectors

CONNECTIONS W/ OTHER SAINTS: Two other archangesl, Michael & Raphael

SYMBOLS: Represented as young and adrogynous w/ wings. Sometimes wears a crown. Holds lily (symbolizes Mary's purity)

(Blatently stolen from "Saints in Art" by Rosa Giorgi, Trans. by T. M. Hartmann)

I'm not entirely sure why I started doing this. I think it started when I had to make a trip to The Cloisters and choose a medieval work to write about. I chose a polychrome of St. Michael. In order to get more information, I got a copy of "Saints in Art," which of course I started to read.

Then I thought, "Wouldn't it be fun to draw pictures of all the saints?"

Then my brain added, "Wouldn't it be fun to draw pictures of all the saints as /chibis/?"

So I did.

Only I have this horrible fear of using excessive Random Japanese, so I won't call them chibis. I just won't. You can call them that, though.

Anyways, this is the first one I drew. It's Saint Gabriel, one of the three Archangels.

You know something? I really like this. Its sweet without being obnoxiously so. And the fact that you actually researched the idea is neat too.
