Angel Of St. Giles
Painting - Acrylic On Canvas
Eight years ago, while in Scotland, I visited St. Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh. There is a chapel there used by the Royal Family when they visit, with the inside walls covered with wood paneling and carved figures. One of the figures is an angel playing the bagpipes. This painting was inspired by that angel. His tattoo is my own design in celtic style of St. Giles,himself protecting a deer from a hunter's arrow, which has found it's home in St. Giles chest. St. Giles was actually a French monk that ended up in Scotland. The story goes that while he was trying to prevent a stag from being shot by a hunter, was killed himself with the arrow intended for the animal. The tartan is McKenzie, which has no significance, I simply liked the colors.
