Why are angels depicted as having wings?
In the Bible, angels are not described as winged beings. I think that artists gave angels their wings as a symbol of divinity and to indicate that angels were not bound by earthly laws. After all, angels can come and go, and appear and vanish at will.
Furthermore, of all the animals of the earth, birds seem to be the freest. So it seems fit that angels sport feathered wings.
Interestingly, angels are not the only supernatural beings portrayed as having wings. You will find gods and goddesses, fallen angels and demons, and even fictional heroes and villains who display wings. The Ancient Egyptians had the goddess Isis and the Ancient Greeks had the god Hermes. Both deities had wings. Go to this page to learn more about winged creatures.

Angel Wing Quotes
"How shall we tell an angel from another guest?
How, from the common worldly herd, One of the blest?
Hint of suppressed halo, rustle of hidden wings,
wafture of heavenly frankincense,-
Which is these things?
The old Sphinx smile so subtly:
'I give no golden rule,
Yet I would warn thee, World:
Treat well whom thou call'st fool'..."
~ Gertrude Hall
