I make and hand paint each angel from scratch so, it's your choice, the angel holding the banner can be male or female. The banner can have whatever message you'd like (I'll let you know if it's too long). Your angel can be carrying a cat or rabbit. I can add a particular detail to the clothing pattern. In the past I have been asked for a Maple leaf, a fish, a line of poetry, a song lyric, a raven, you name it, I'll have a go! The ones in the photos are just to give you an idea. Your angel will measure approximately 14cm X 15cm at the widest points and comes with a secure hanger on the back.
