MEDIEVAL ARTISTS USUALLY PORTRAYED THE ANGELS AS BEING STRICTLY FEMININE, THOUGH THERE IS NOTHING IN THE BIBLE TO SUPPORT THIS. IT PROBABLY HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE FEMINIE ASPECT OF TRUTH. WOMEN, IN MY EXPERIENCE, ARE MUCH QUICKER TO SEE AND KNOW THE TRUTH THAN MEN. IN ANY CASE, MOST OF THE MORE RECENT IMAGES OF ANGELS IN ART ARE FEMININE. HOWEVER, I HAVE FOUND AN ETCHING BY REMBRANDT THAT SHOWS ABRAHAM PREPARING A MEAL FOR THE ANGELS. THEY HAD COME TO TELL HIM THAT HIS ELDERLY WIFE, SARAH, WOULD BE WITH CHILD. AND ABRAHAM PREPARED A FEAST. PLEASE NOTE THAT IN THESE IMAGES THE ANGELS DO LOOK FEMININE AT ALL BUT RATHER HAVE RECEDING HAIRLINES AND GOATEES. I LIKE THESE IMAGES!
NOW, SINCE THE ANGEL APPEARS AT THE MANGER, WHAT SHALL HE/SHE BE FED? A DISH OF ANGEL HAIR PASTA WITH WHIPPED CREAM AND PORCINI (DRIED MUSHROOMS), THE PERFECT COMBINATION OF THE WHEAT OF THE EARTH, THE MUSHROOMS THAT GROW FROM RUIN, AND WHIPPED CREAM, WHICH POINTS TO THEIR CLOUDS OF TRAVEL. HONEY CAKE WITH ROSE WATER WE WILL SERVE AS A DESSERT, REMEMBERING THE EARLY CHUCH BLESSING, ‘HOW SWEET IF YOUR WORD UPON MY LIPS.’ Published by WILLIAM MORROW AND COMPANY in 1991 written by JEFF SMITH & CRAIG WOLLAM & TERRIN HALEY & D C SMITH with photos by LOUIS WALLACH & woodcuts by DAVID FRAMPTON.
