Arcane Divination 5" Gabriel Archangel Dunny Marbled Art Figure by J*RYU
“Let my clarion call strike fear into evil’s heart, I watch keenly over those who desire to lead us unto an unjust path, for I am the guardian and the herald."
The archangel Gabriel arrives to counter the presence of darkness within man, by leading those who seek the light into understanding and salvation. This ethereal being stands counter to those demonic forces who seek to confuse and misdirect, and offers salvation to those who are in need of healing. It is up to us all to determine what direction we go, and the methods in which we attain our goals, thus the ongoing battle between Demons and Angels rages on for all eternity.
Designed as an accompanying piece to the 5-inch Azazel Demon Dunny by Jon-Paul Kaiser, the 5-inch Gabriel Archangel Dunny by J*RYU arrives to provide balance and harmony against discord and malcontent. Featuring a beautifully sculpted angel upon a crumbling facade, the 5” Gabriel Dunny stands watch and offers solace to all that seek peace.
The high-quality vinyl Gabriel Archangel Dunny comes in two limited edition versions, a Kidrobot.com Exclusive stone version, limited to 350 pieces worldwide, and this Grey & Gold Marbled version, limited to 1,000 pieces worldwide.
