Angels, light bearers, as an iconographical type between a statue and a liturgical object (candlestick) used to be part of church furnishings since the Middle Ages. They usually held the candlestick in an adoration gesture, therefore these iconographical types of angels are often found in pairs, as pendants, in the liturgical space. According to the information obtained by the seller, the statues were found in Bijacovce in Spiš.
