The tiny angel can sit on a shelf and also has hole in the back for hanging. Its face is carved and painted basswood. The details are pencil drawing. A matte varnish seals and protects the face and wings.The wings are carved in shallow bas- relief on an antique piece of wood. The lines on the wings are incised into the paint. The base is wood (base woods vary usually cherry, poplar or oak) The front piece on the base is antique salvaged wood. Each angel varies a bit. Variations in expression and color are expected and are part of what is special about handmade things. Since antique salvaged wood is used there are of course variations in that. Rest assured each tiny angel is a tiny art work that is made by the artist with care and attention to detail.
