“Reliquary of a Warrior Angel” approximately 18.5x26x6” (wings extended). Acrylic painting on panel, wood, brass, composition gold and silver leaf, polymer clay, arrow tips. The latest piece in the Dankquart Collection, this angel themed reliquary has a sculpted ornament and four artifact inserts on the exterior and two doors which open to reveal the painting inside which then extend outward to become the angel’s wings. You can read about the steps involved in the making of the work, and watch a video of the completed piece on my blog HERE.
