If angels are real, this is probably the best depiction of what one looks like. It’s a hyper-realistic sculpture called “Angel” by noted Chinese artists Sun Yuan and Peng Yu.

From the artists’ website:

Angel, a life-size sculpture in fiber-reinforced polymer and silica gel of a fallen angel is … an old woman in a white gown and with featherless wings, [who] is lying face-down on the ground; maybe sleeping, maybe dead, but certainly immobile and frozen into an all too realistic image. The supernatural being, now nothing more than an impotent creature, can neither carry out any supreme will nor be of any help to those believing in its existence. The angel is true but ineffective; dreams and hopes are sincere yet vain.
