St. Raphael by John Collier.  Seven feet in height; bronze and acrylic.  This recenly-installed archangel is the patron saint of St. Raphael Catholic Church in El Paso, Texas where it was installed.

John says,” I desired to make the wings suggesting invisibility because in the story from the book of Tobit the archangel is in disguise. He is shown moving quickly, a leader as well as a friendly and approachable companion. “
