Very soon, my husband and I will be traveling to Los Angeles.
And while we are there one of the things I’d REALLY like to do is find a pair (or two or three) of Colette Miller angel wings.
If you’re unfamiliar with this phenomena, it is a global angel wings project she started back in 2012 to remind humanity that we are the angels of this earth. As quoted from Blouin Art Info:
“When I created it in 2012, I was doing a lot of meditation and yoga, accessing my calm, ego-less self. I asked myself, what do I want to see in the world? Driving through LA highways, I kept seeing empty walls – blank canvases. And I kept envisioning wings on the walls, in my imagination. They seemed to me to be a symbol of humanity’s higher self.
Wings are what I would want to see in a dark alley, you know? If you’re on the cusp of deciding whether you’re scared or have courage – whether to hate or to love. If you saw wings of divinity you might choose to do the right thing.”
So she painted a pair.
Similar to the ones pictured below. And they took off (no pun intended).
Angel wings can now be found in various places amongst the United States… California (many located in downtown L.A. where she’s currently from), New York, Pennsylvania, Hawaii… and she’s even crossed international borders to Mexico, Kenya, Australia, and Havana, Cuba.
And the thing we were MOST surprised about?…
