Tuba Angel

Art is everywhere in Britain. This tuba angel, part of the "Angel Quire" at Bath Abbey, took my eye yesterday. The angel and eleven others like her decorate the screens in the choir at the church.

Each angel is different. This one is blowing her heart out, forever, on a valved tuba while curling her toes on the edge of the cornice not too far from the great organ and its tuba ranks. Who knows, maybe she is the patron angel of the magnificent organ at Bath Abbey.
