Grand Prize
~Bridge of Angels, Rome Italy~

By Barbara J. Kraemer

The Bridge of Angels is an original Watercolor painting created by local artist Barbara Kraemer. Through this work, the artist hopes to convey a thoughtful and intriguing representation of this glorious structure that beckons locals and visitors from around the globe alike to enter St. Peter’s Basilica, and be awed by the amazing beauty of The Vatican in The Holy City, Rome, Italy.

The Bridge of Angels  was constructed in 134 AD, by Emperor Hadrian in order to connect the center of Antique Rome with his newly built mausoleum (today better known as Castel Sant’Angelo).   Each sculptured angel symbolizes a part from the story of Jesus Christ’s suffering and death by crucifixion. Statues of the saints Peter and Paul watch over the entrance way of the bridge.

More of Barbara’s art may be viewed on Facebook Page “Works of Art by Barbara Kraemer”. Contact her at barbara.kraemer@comcast.net.
