He was on the tomb of a long ago bishop in the Cathedral of Pistoia.

Maybe that paintbrush Ralph is actually a broom and its his turn to dust and clean the entire place.
Looks like me on a monday morning…

Oh, poor little fellow. What a sad look! I wonder what was wrong with him…
Maybe he is losing his job…blowing hosannahs for the bishop from his little horn!
I never thought of that, Jane. So, did they lose their position when they lost their patron, do you suppose?
Hmmm….whose angels are following you around today?
Some unemployed types, I guess, Jane. 🙂
What do you think of Pistoia? The description of it in my first ever Italian guidebook (late 80s) as a very gloomy town has always stuck in my memory, along with the phrase ‘the stripiest church in Christendom’ of San Giovanni Fuoricivitas – did you go there? I’d like to go back there one day to check out both of these descriptions!
I was there on a warm, sunny day. There was a gigantic market sprawling through several of the piazze with lots of activity going on. I stumbled across a tour to the top of the campanile, and got to see the town from on high, also. So, my impression of the small part of Pistoia that I saw was a positive one. Do go back, after consulting some contemporary information. 🙂
I wonder what the artist had in mind. Good eye for you to spot this. 🙂
We’ll have to look more closely at the cherubs in sculpture.
There was a plump companion angel on the other side of the forever sleeping bishop. This one looked rather sulky, but I just couldn’t get a good photo because of the lighting on him, So, maybe Gerard’s suggestion is right, they were both in trouble.
Did ge get smacked?
And, sent to bed without his dinner, Gerard. Poor little angel.
So… life isn’t perfect for the angels either….
I can verify that, Anneli. 🙂
Maybe he’s crying because he’s just been given a paintbrush and is told to paint the house or no tea 😉 ❤
Oh, boy, and it’s a mighty large house. (Do angels eat? Work?) ❤
They probably eat Angel Cake and there are millions really busy keeping the two of us out of trouble 😀 ❤
Some days they must be asleep on the job, Ralph. 🙂 ❤
Maybe so ! 😀 ❤
Maybe he’s crying because he can’t find his wings…
It is a sweet shot.
The other angels were not at all emotional like this little fellow.
Then he’s probably missing the bishop who was his personal friend.
Bless so sweet, you so rarely see angels cry,
I’m so glad I spotted the little fellow.
