Every angel is terrifying − the poet Rainer Maria Rilke used to declare, and this opinion was strongly supported by the fiction writer Ted Chiang who described the destructive power of the entities in a vivid, at times blunt, way in his novelette “Hell Is the Absence of God”.
Nevertheless, this female angel shot by an anonymous photographer turned out to be a harmless individual. She was spotted near Kazimierz Dolny (Poland), where she appeared with no particular intention to herald or work God’s will. This aroused substantial disappointment among the members of the local community, especially among religious people, who often petition specific actions from supernatural beings, demanding if not miracles then at least some firm interventions in current issues.
