Many religious images feature guardian angels and quite a few of them reflect stories of the Bible. These images, like 'St Michael Battling with the Dragon From the 'Apocalypse'' by Albrecht Durer are highly popular religious images. However, many mythological pictures also incorporate angels.
Because these works feature fantastical elements, they are often considered mythological pictures. Guardian angel images that are considered within this category are often based off of tales from Greek and Roman psychology. For example, in the 'Ravishment of Psyche' religious image by William Adolphe Bouguereau, Eros, the Roman god of love and passion is portrayed as an angel.
Guardian angel art is suitable for many ages, however prints for children are often more whimsical than their adult counterparts. These inspirational prints often show angels watching over their small charges, as seen in the whimsical painting 'Guardian Angel' by Tobey. Additionally, children are actually portrayed as angels themselves, as demonstrated by the religious image 'A Little Faith' by Dona Gelsinger.
