T. Schmalz's "Angels Unawares"

This is a new, magnificent bronze sculpture located in St. Peter's Square in The Vatican. Titled "Angels Unawares," this is the first new sculpture installed in 400 years there. It depicts a group of diverse migrants and refugees on a boat, and includes angels wings, which suggests that a migrant is secretly an angel in our midst.
