What's Christmas without angels? Who doesn't tear up at “It's a Wonderful Life”'s, crescendo of smaltz when little Zuzu says, “Teacher says, every time a bell rings an angel gets his wings.” (Wipe tear from eye.)

In the case of Amy Caron's angels, however, a bell probably means an angel got his moustache or tattoo.

Caron uses papier maché, dried kiwi, feathers and ice cream sprinkles to create her off-the-wall Mexican folk-art angels which you can purchase to display on your walls.

Caron's Angel Series, including Camael, Maion and Aurelio, is being displayed at Frida Bistro through the holidays, which should make the great restaurant on the bad side of town a fantastic place to have a Christmas luncheon with that dear pal that you've consistently blown off the past year.
