Ghosts and Angels

At first glance I thought this image at Vintage Printables was actually an angel, but look closely at her face profile; vacant eye, sharp nose, and a mean mouth with a pronounced underbite (or is that an overbite?).
Would like to know what the significance of the laurel wreath is…

The angel was drawn from a japanese or korean book image stumbled upon somewhere in google books, (I wish I could remember where in order to give proper attribution).

I've made her into a repeatable tile (thank you Julia Rothman!!!) and will either spoonflower some fabric or try carving a lino block.
