Angel of Death: Mysterious statue kills teenage girl


www.smh.com.au

Police are investigating how a cast-iron statue came to be on the Warrego Highway, where it is believed to have caused a freak crash that killed a teenage girl.

Candice Mangan, 18, was killed instantly when the sedan she was travelling in struck the cherub garden statue on the westbound lanes of the highway and careered into oncoming traffic.

Candice's 18-year-old boyfriend Brett Muller lost control of his Holden Commodore car after hitting the statue, veering across the highway and colliding with two cars travelling in the opposite direction, police said.

Officers could not confirm if the statue was on or beside the road, whether it was placed there as a prank or had fallen off the back of a truck.

freak accident!. No supernatural "hocus pocus" here. I have heard stories of paintings containing cherub images surviving & being blamed for house fires but it is all BS! My sympathies to the families involved!

Early Semitic tradition conceived the cherubim as guardians, being devoid of human feelings, and holding a duty both to represent the gods and to guard sanctuaries from intruders, in a comparable way to an account found on Tablet 9 of the inscriptions found at Nimrud. In this view, cherubim, like the shedu, were probably originally depictions of storm deities, especially the storm winds. This view is offered as a hypothesis to explain the reason for cherubim being described as acting as the chariot of Yahweh in Ezekiel's dream, the Books of Samuel, the parallel passages in the later Book of Chronicles, and passages in the early Psalms: "and he rode upon a cherub and did fly: and he was seen upon the wings of the wind".

Based upon this, the allegorical implication would be that this "angel" could have been protecting a secret, or something along those lines.


For all forces are angels! How blind, how perniciously blind are the naive?! If you told someone who purports to be a sage of Israel that the Deity sends an angel who enters a woman's womb and there forms an embryo, he would think this a miracle and accept it as a mark of the majesty and power of the Deity - despite the fact that he believes an angel to be a body of fire one third the size of the entire world. All this, he thinks, is possible for God. But if you tell him that God placed in the sperm the power of forming and demarcating these organs, and that this is the angel, or that all forms are produced by the Active Intellect - that here is the angel, the "vice-regent of the world" constantly mentioned by the sages - then he will recoil.
For he [the naive person] does not understand that the true majesty and power are in the bringing into being of forces which are active in a thing although they cannot be perceived by the senses....Thus the Sages reveal to the aware that the imaginative faculty is also called an angel; and the mind is called a cherub. How beautiful this will appear to the sophisticated mind - and how disturbing to the primitive."

From same source

In Kabblah the implications are a bit different and a bit more esoteric.

That statue does look kind of creepy. Maybe there is a metaphysical force of negative energy involved? It just looks like one of those "cursed" statues.

Condolences to the young lady's family and friends.

We would only think such a thing because it's a statue with religious connections. If a handcart caused the accident it would receive far less attention. There is no "divine intention".

Yeah I agree,.
so if a Jesus statue falls off a truck in busy traffic
and causes a large traffic accident and one person or a few dont
sustain any injuries, then could say jesus saved them? that seems to be the silly logic here.
I say just coincidence she died, but writers will uses whatever to get their story read.
