Malibu's angel watching over the PCH...

Finally I've managed to stop and snap this angel sculpture that watches over the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) in Malibu.

It's been vexing me for some time that I drive past and it's always too late to stop or turn around and take a quick photo. This time I made sure to photograph it on the way back from a morning of playing with Cooper on the beach at Sycamore Cove in Ventura County.

You'll find this particular angel amongst the parking lot for the Malibu Urgent Care medical center, next to the Chevron gas station and along the road from the Malibu Colony Plaza.

It looks rather bland, with simple blue wings from the back and silver facade from the front, but who knows what it once looked like after being sun-bleached and corroded by all that salty marine layer drifting in and out, whilst it stands sentry beside the PCH.

I'm not sure if it's even a part of the original Community of Angels Sculptural Project from 2001 to 2002, or merely just a similar fiberglass angel cast.

Can anyone help me out with any information or history on this angel and how it came to be standing there?

Whatever the reason, it's another sighting in my angel quest around Los Angeles and L.A. County (although Cooper wasn't too enamoured with it and started barking at the sculpture, not quite sure what to make of it).

They keep appearing, so I'm sure there's many more out there to discover, and so the hunt for angels continues...
