Angels with Big Hands

My eyes were immediately drawn to the large hands on these angels. Any angel experts out there who could confirm they are male?

The memorial is  to William Taylor, past provincial grand master of the Chorley district of the Independent Order of Oddfellows M.U. who died in 1859. He introduced Oddfellowship into this district and laboured to promote its welfare in this and neighbouring towns for many years.

Beautiful memorial. They are in fact male angels. Most angels are.

beautiful photos! But I'm left wondering what that last part should finish --- "Laboured to promote its...." what? Does it continue on the other side?

This is a very cool and detailed marker --- thanks for sharing!

Well spotted! It does and I have finished the sentence in my description. It was a freezing winter's day when I visited. I grabbed this shot at the end of three hours of shivering photography!
