The Angel and Shepherds Plaque, made of solid bronze, beautifully depicts the angel’s appearance to the shepherds announcing Christ’s birth.
The amazement the shepherds surely felt at the angel’s appearance is conveyed through this ethereal image, suggestive of a remembered dream. The shepherds stand gazing toward the angel as if they have just leapt to their feet; even the sheep are rapt, though they lean back as if frightened. “Do not be afraid” the angel tells the shepherds.

“In that region there were shepherds living in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. Then an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for see—I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people: to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is the Messiah, the Lord.”
