I have my own theories about angels which have nothing to do with this depiction, or the IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE notion. I don’t go along with the idea of feathered, bird like wings sprouting out of a body that’s not a bird. By the same token, I always felt that if mermaids were real, they would not have fish tails, with scales. More likely they would be similar to a dolphin’s tail.
