"God of Heaven - The Throne Room Angel"

The Throne Room Angel - Heaven is depicted in many ways in the bible . - John received a ‘ vision’ or picture of heaven as God’s throne room ‘ and before the throne there was a sea of glass, like crystal ‘ (Revelation 4:6) John describes angels around the throne, four living creatures each with six wings worshipping and declaring God’s nature and character. The Throne Room Angel reflects the crystal sapphire sea of the vast heavenly ocean surrounding God. Revelation 21 describes heaven as a place where there is no sorrow, pain or mourning and where God " will wipe away every tear from their eyes" ( Revelation 21:4). The six glass wings radiate the angels' endless refrain.The Angel is 1.57 m tall comprising of 100 kg of glass with a patenated brass frame.
