Pictures of an old lady with wings are going viral on Facebook and WhatsApp with people believing that an angel have fallen from the sky. Digida 106.5 FM have shared images of a winged old lady in white on Facebook with description, “Real Life Fallen Angel Has Fallen From The Sky In London. Is this the end of the world?” People have gone crazy after the post and are sharing the images without any confirmation. The post was liked by over one lakh people and shared by over 2 lakh. We will tell you the truth behind these pictures.”
The pictures were an art installation from 2008 by Beijing artists Sun Yuan & Peng Yu for their work titled ‘Angel’. Cadavers, among other materials, was used by the artists to create the hyper-realistic sculpture. The motive behind the installation was to present the imaginary and mythological subjects into regular, everyday life.
“The angel, an old woman in a white gown and with featherless wings, is lying face-down on the ground; maybe sleeping, maybe dead, but certainly immobile and frozen into an all too realistic image. The supernatural being, now nothing more than an impotent creature, can neither carry out any supreme will nor be of any help to those believing in its existence. The angel is true but ineffective; dreams and hopes are sincere yet vain,” the official website explains about the photographs. (ALSO READ: Horrific!

With pictures floating on social media, people even worried that it signals the end of the world. It was just an art nothing else. The artists must get appreciations as their work looks so real.
