THE angel behind ANGELS Doll Studio

For years now, I've been meaning to photograph this angel, and today I went to my parent's house, and finally remembered to bring my camera.

This is a marble angel that as the story goes my great-great-great-great-grandfather Andrew Metzger carved. This is the only remaining piece of his work. From what I was told he gave one to each of his children, and one of the aunts got dementia and spray painted and destroyed all but the one that was in my great-grandmother's care. Greatx4 Grandfather was a sculptor in the old country and he created angels for mausoleums and churches. My mother is the guardian of the angel.

My doll studio is a legacy to Great-Grandfather Metzger. This is why my studio is "ANGELS Doll Studio."
