As with all of his figurines and other collectibles, Jim Shore first sculpts the item out of wood. Once the item (in this case, the angel) is exactly how Shore envisioned it, he makes a mold, which is then used to make the figurines. Each figurine is hand painted, which means that each one will be unique. There is a lot of attention paid to details, which make these Jim Shore angels beautiful collectibles for any home.
