The Angel is sculpted from two thousand pounds of Carrara Italian marble to Robert Beardsley’s precise specifications replicating a small baptismal font that he had collected years earlier. The smaller piece resides in the drawing room at Ruthmere. The Angel has been planned by Robert to serve as his private memorial to preside and protect him in his eternal rest. The Angel arrived at Ruthmere Museum September 3, 2009 and serves as a modern representation of classical sculpture.
