Seraphim by chicken32678 Seraphim by chicken32678
This one is going to have a longer description than most of my pieces. This was my text figure piece in Ceramics. Obviously it meant we had to use at least part of a human figure and it had to utilize text in it. My professor didn't think my angel would make it through the process with all its wings attached, but I didn't have to glue anything back on! The wings each have a verse on them and I will list them here since you can't read them in the picture.

Top Left: Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels numbering thousands upon thousands, ten thousand times ten thousand...
Middle Right: ...They encircled the throne and the living creatures and the elders. Revelation 5:11
Top Right: In a loud voice they sang: "Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise! Revelation 5:12
Bottom Left: Above Him were seraphim, each with six wings: with two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. Isaiah 6:2
Middle Left: And they were calling to one another "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty, the whole earth is full of His glory." Isaiah 6:3
Bottom Right: At the sound of their voices the door posts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke. Isaiah 6:4
Back Top Right: In the same way, I tell you there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents. Luke 15:10
Back Top Left: Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation? Hebrews 1:14
Back Bottom Right: For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. Psalm 91:11
Back Bottom Left: Praise Him all His angels. Praise Him all His heavenly hosts. Psalm 148:2

You could give lessons in depicting seraphim to Medieval artists. They often looked kinda silly...

decorous behavior, proper and prim
Invited on the tone of a seraphim
by the praise he solmizates in a hymm
bosky wings illuminate the trudge to Him

I wonder why Seraphims cover their feet and face with their extra pairs of wings.

because God is too holy for any living being to look at him if they did then they would melt away. I dont remember where it says that but it does...

its interesting to note that Sarphim themselves are so brilliant in radiance that most can't look directly apon them either,including many of the other angels.

This is WONDERFUL. I have surfed the web looking for a scriptural picture and this is the closest I can find. It has a good Spirit as well as accuracy. I think God is revealing Himself today as never before. Artist: can I draw a picture of this to use in a kids booklet we are producing about God? It may end up being part of a coloring page. I will give you credit. We give the booklets away for cost to children when they receive Christ. Thank you for sharing it here! Bless you!
Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.
And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever. (Revelation 5:13-14)

This may sound odd, and you must forgive me as I don't leave comments on many pieces, but...

I'm going to read this book now. This, combined with the oh-so-epic verses have enticed me to finally sit down and read it. Thank you.

That is a truly amazing piece of sculpture, in design and concept. I like how the face and feet are covered (as they should be), and the scripture on each wings is brilliant. Were I to find this item available for purchase, I would feel wholly compelled to pick it up, though I am not the overly religious sort myself. :+fav:

Thank you! The whole piece started with reading Isaiah 6, so yes, I tried to make it biblical as possible (and yet still doable).
