Handmade Byzantine Icon of Michael and Gabriel the Holy Archangels.
Archangels Michael and Gabriel are messengers of God for the protection of man. In the Holy Bible we often encounter the appearance of Archangels and their protective actions in favor of people.
Archangel Michael helped the Israel people when they escaped from Egypt and in the future, he will be the one to announce the Second Coming. The Archangel Gabriel announces the coming of the Messiah, while in the Gospel of Luke we learn that he announces the birth of Jesus Christ to the Virgin Mary.
