This massive statue of an angel stands on a small elevation in the middle of the Grote Markt in Zwolle. The sculpture is made up of 350 glass sheets of 1 centimeter thick. By means of a 3D scan, a digital pattern of a man with wings has been enlarged, converted into layers and then cut into glass. The layers are stacked and glued on top of each other, creating a beautiful, solid, transparent image where the light shines through in a different way at any time of the day. Michaël is the guardian angel of Zwolle and stands on one of the towers of the Grote Kerk with dragon and sword. He protects the city against evil. Now a modern transparent Michael is between the people.
