I have several pieces of "cooldrink" (soda) can art from South Africa. These angels may be my favorite - they're unusual and imaginative. The angels are sold in a pack of three, but each has a small note card attached that tells the story of the Peace Angels, the project in South Africa and the young men who made them. The six I purchased are all different and are now standing on a mantelpiece - where they are much admired. A single angel would be a lovely token gift. I am ordering several more sets for this purpose.Read More
