Rome Monument specializes in designing monuments and grave markers that incorporate angels in the artwork, etchings, engravings, bas relief, sculpted elements and monument shape. Families choose to use angels in the design of a memorial because they symbolize strength, protection, love, faith, the connection between heaven and earth, renewal, and beauty.
Usually, the position of the angel, or what is depicted alongside the angel, is what offers the most meaning to observers. For example: when the angel's right hand is pointed upward or holding the body of the deceased, this demonstrates a belief that angels are guiding the soul to heaven. When an angel is seen praying, this alludes to the religious devotion of the deceased, and a weeping angel indiciated the deceased passed away at an unfortunate time or at an early age. An angel with its wings spread is symbolic of the flight to heaven. To learn more about angel monuments and what they mean, see the video above.
