    A friend of mine lost a younger sibling and I was thinking of giving him this small stauette of an angel that I have, if I see him again. I was just wondering if that would be okay? I know Jehovah's witnessess don't celebrate Christmas etc so I just wanted to ask if there is any form of ruling on images of angels?

    Thanks.

    I think it'd fall under their ban of idols.

    Oh, I wondered if that might be the case. Maybe just flowers will do.
    Thank you.

    Yeah they ban quite a few things that people can see as typically christian under their idol ban.
    No problem.

    I think flowers would be a good idea. As has been said, a statue of an angel would be considered pagan.
