This powerful image, features an African-American male guardian angel with intently piercing eyes, standing watch to protect and guard mankind. The title "The Watcher" is so appropriate for this image as it brings to mind the scriptural verse of Psalm 91:11 (NIV) - "For He will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;." What a wonderful message for us all to hold onto during these unprecedented times. This poetically breath-taking image would make a striking display in your home and a topic of conversation.
