The angel messenger announces the start of the play “Everyman” with raised hand and sword. He wears an ankle-length cloak fastened with a broach around his neck and a belt above his waist, has wings almost as long, plain slippers or shoes, and is drawn with a large halo.
This woodcut is in a very characteristic 1920s/1930s style.
Note that the word “angel” originally meant “messenger”—the wings and the halo came much later.
