“On wheels of light, on wings of flame,

The angel of the Lord here has I think the regulation six pairs of wings, piercing eyes and bare feet wit long slender toes. In the background, against a starry night, are various figures with halos and harps, presumably saints or apostles. A good image for an unusual christmas card, perhaps?

The banner reads, Gloria in excelsis deo et in terra pax, a quote which conveniently misses the last few words: Glory to God in heaven and peace on earth [to men of good will]
