ABOUT THE LAVAGGI LEGACY OF HOPE
Lavaggi’s 21st century symbol of an angel, at first glance appears to be simple and understated. Further study reveals this angel to be elegant, fluid and streamlined, which was the artists intent when designing it. It is a forward leaning, progressive, futuristic angel design.
One of the reasons this angel appeals to such a vast spectrum of people is because it is not perceived as a religious symbol as much as it is an inspirational one. This allows every viewer to discover the personal meaning within themselves as to what this vision represents.
The Angels of Reconciliation series represents a global symbol of unity and reconciliation for all of humanity, whether it be reconciliation between the individual and God, people’s relationships, or even reconciliation between nations. It is a message of hope and reassurance for the times in which we live.
Faith, hope and love are the core messages for Steven as he has always creatively reflected light in the midst of the darkness, encouraging the viewers to believe in the higher purposes of life through a spiritual perspective.
