"O Angel of Christ, my holy Guardian and Protector of my soul and body, forgive me all my sins of today. Deliver me from all the wiles of the enemy, that I may not anger my God by any sin. Pray for me, sinful and unworthy servant, that thou mayest present me worthy of the kindness and mercy of the All-holy Trinity and the Mother of my Lord Jesus Christ, and of all the Saints. Amen." Eastern Orthodox Prayer
Russian Guardian angels from our collection are all made out of wood. Every single one of them is the original work of Russian carvers and painters, who live in Russia. As Christians they believe in Guardian Angels who according to the Russian Orthodox Church accompany every person born on Earth during his lifetime. Every single Russian Guardian Angel is a concrete realization of the thoughts and inspirations of every artist. Those pieces are not multiplied copies, but one of a kind pieces of art. There is a beautiful Russian tradition of giving an Angel Guardian (Ангел-Хранитель, as we say it in Russian, Angel Guardian) as a gift to family members on Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve.
Every angel you see carries an Angel Name from the Bible. Under every angel there is a short note about angel's virtues. The personification is helping to better understand the meaning of every angel.
