“It was originally titled ‘The Angel of Corinthia’. I had envisioned an angel reading St. Paul’s famous text on love to the Corinthians. The angel is reading it for the first time and is deeply touched.” – Michael Parkes

Discover the world of art and the collections that continue to inspire artists at the Marcus Ashley Gallery. The prestigious establishment in Lake Tahoe displays some of the world’s finest exhibits, including Michael Parkes art. Feast your eyes on the sculptor’s 3D oeuvre that reveals an intriguing side of his craftsmanship.

Parkes marries faultless sculpting with a touching representation of St. Paul’s eponymous letter of love to the Corinthians. When the saint visited Corinth in Greece, he set up a Christian community. Paul later learned that there was friction between the members of the early church. The First Letter of St. Paul to the Corinthians spoke of love between man and Christ in an attempt to unify the people of Corinth.

In Isabelle/Bella, Parkes captures the emotion of an angel as she reads Paul’s letter on love. From the delicate folds of her gown to the intricate details of her wings, the attention to detail shows that the sculptor carves this sculpture with just as much love.
