One of our number was in the chapel some months ago with a group who were being given a conducted tour. The guide pointed out this angel and said solemnly: “The posture of this angel is of great significance to Freemasons” but could not offer any explanation as to why.

Our members have no knowledge of how sitting, with one’s right hand placed on the leg below the knee and the left hand placed on the right breast can be Masonic. None have ever seen this posture in any Masonic setting.
