Betrayed by Lucifer, and cast from heaven by God, the Fallen Angels crawl the earth in search of solace. And now Artifice, captivating as a solid silver figurine, is yours to take under your wing.
Introducing The Fallen Angels, From The Silversmith Collection
… And the great dragon was cast out… he was cast out into the earth and his angels were cast out with him. - Revelations 12:7-9
There was once a time, Lucifer was good, with followers who enjoyed peace in Heaven under God. But his deception to God dragged his followers down a path they never expected. Cast asunder with the Devil, they fell to earth - forever known as The Fallen Angels, and now, commemorated in solid silver in the Silversmith Collection.
Fallen Angel Statue In Solid Silver Designed from a live model, Artifice is seen with her despairing head buried deep within her arms. But if you look even closer, you will see something rarely heard of in silver sculpture – her head and face are intricately sculpted to sit through her arms, onto her knees. Her name means ‘deception’, but it is she who has been deceived by Satan - broken and disillusioned.
Artifice is the female companion to Volnus, a bronze sculpture created by Paul Ray Effinger that won Best of Show at the 2013 Texas Art Hop. Paul’s full resume is overwhelming. In 2003 he left his 12 year career as a Lead Character Artist in the Gaming Industry to pursue his passion in sculpting and building his own foundry. Paul’s original Bronze Artifice weighs an impressive 95lbs! Your solid silver Figurine is more than 500 grams - and not a detail missed.
