A ponderous angel.

Guarding a doorway in San Francisco.

Why would you stick a disembodied angel head in a doorway like this? It's not as if this thing — who does that face remind me of? — is going to lighten the hearts or inspire the souls of those who pass through.

Think Christopher Hitchens should use this for the cover of his next anti-religion screed?

Christopher Hitchens as an angel head? Oh, the irony!

It alludes to Los Angeles.

How about Leo Mc Kern or maybe Michael J. Pollard after a bender?

Bob said...

Looks a little like Babe Ruth's face, especially the nose.

Mergatroid!

Looks like W.C. Fields.

Glenn Greenwald?

I don't know what he looks like, but it looks like he sounds like.

Actually that was Orson Welles bemused expression as he was getting a reach around from Joseph Cotten during the filming of
the Magnificent Ambersons.

It's that short guy from "Lost". Maybe it will be explained in the next season.

Insofar as angels are pure spirit, they're all disembodied.

Looks like Damien from The Omen

"Insofar as angels are pure spirit, they're all disembodied."

Not Della Reese.

Ruth Anne Adams said...

Maxine Weiss: I love your new avatar. And Della Reese was not an angel, but she played one on TV.

[W]ho does that face remind me of?

Clarence the Angel in "It's a Wonderful Life."

Bissage beat me to it. I saw Michael J. Pollard.

Now that Ruth Anne mentions it, though, there is a resemblance to Henry Travers of It's A Wonderful Life.
