An Angel Using a Mobile Phone


St. John's Cathedral in the city of  ‘s-Hertogenbosch (colloquially known as Den Bosch) in the Netherlands is extensively decorated with statues of religious figures.  The cathedral dates to the sixteenth century, so it has had to undergo multiple restorations.  During the most recent restoration, sculptor Ton Mooy from Amersfoort was commissioned to create 25 angels.
Interestingly enough he also decided to create one modern angel. Although the cathedral's fathers rejected an angel with jet engines on the angel's back, they finally approved of an angel in jeans with a mobile phone... "The phone has just one button”, says the artist, “It dials directly to God."

The angel actually has her own telephone number: +31 900 746 8526 (80ct/min). The proceeds go towards the upkeep of the cathedral. Ref:

At least she's actually talking and not looking completely retarded typing with her thumb and staring at the 2 inch screen of an internet crack phone.
