Modern Angel

Modern Angel
Hundreds of beautiful sculptures can be found on St. John’s Cathedral depicting all sorts of heavenly or hellish scenes. Recently the largest of the seven cathedrals in the Netherlands was graced with another unique sculpture. Artist Ton Mooij received a commission from the church council to design a modern angel. His creative mind led him to create a contemporary angel who has a direct connection to God. You see the angel is, well... on the phone. Admittedly it's an obsolete pre-war model, but still quite unusual. The angel was given a spot with an excellent view (not to mention great reception) in a chair on a flying buttress on the south side of the 500-year-old house of worship. Whether the phone has a pay-as-you-go or a pay-monthly arrangement has not yet been disclosed.
