Well maybe not angels in the attic exactly, but certainly in the garden.
As they say, great minds think alike, and this is obviously true of those intelligent souls who decided to create the Community of Angels sculptural project in 2001 and 2002 here in L.A. as a play on the affectionate nickname 'City of Angels'.
Whilst my own Angel Quest has incorporated all manner of angel imagery here in L.A., I have also been trying to find the whereabouts of any of the painted and decorated fiberglass angel statues from the original charity project.
My divine search has already taken me near and far, from the Farmers Market to Universal Studios Hollywood Citywalk, local West Hollywood streets to Downtown L.A. and the Cathedral of our Lady of Angels.
Tipped off to its location by a regular Jason in Hollywood visitor, my travels have recently taken me down near the ocean in Santa Monica.
In the garden outside the Angels Attic at 516 Colorado Avenue I discovered my third original 'Community Angel'.
The picturesque Angels Attic is a museum in a 1895 Queen Anne Victorian house which exhibits antique dolls, dollhouses, miniatures and toys.
The bejeweled angel looks fabulous amongst the pretty garden and certainly catches your eye as you drive past. I can imagine it took an age to affix all those glass pebbles to the angel, but the end result is well worth it.
Sadly it seems I'm about seven or so years too late and of the 400 or so decorated angels very few of them seem to be still displayed in public.
So far I've photographed this Hawaiian shirt clad Travel Angel at the Farmers Market on 3rd and Fairfax...
Plus this mariachi inspired colourful angel outside a restaurant at Universal Citywalk at Universal Studios Hollywood...
I've even seen another angel driving to the beach along the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu (but as yet not been able to photograph it).
I wonder what happened to the rest of the angelic host? If anyone knows where to find any more if they are still in existence, or even owns one, do be sure to let me know.
My heavenly mission will continue....
For those intrigued by these decorative angel sculptures, you can actually buy two books based on the original L.A. project:
