Handmade Byzantine Icon of Archangel Michael.
Archangel Michael is one of the three Archangels mentioned in Christianity and appears early in the Old and New Testaments. His name means "Who is like EI (God)". Together with the Archangels Gabriel and Raphael, they are God's messengers for the protection of man.
His contribution was pivotal when he saved Lot's family from Sodom and when he presented himself to the Israelites to guide them after their deliverance from Egypt. In the future, as the New Testament states, Archangel Michael will be the one to announce the Second Coming.
Commanders of God's armies and ministers of the divine glory, princes of the bodiless angels and guides of mankind, ask for what is good for us, and for great mercy, supreme commanders of the Bodiless Hosts.
The Icon of Archangel Michael is an exact copy of Byzantine art and is created by experienced craftsmen using the method of gold printing where hagiographic leaves of 22 karat gold are applied in detail to decorate the background.
During the final processing, the icon is painted with dark red color around the perimeter and polished with a special varnish to maintain its shine.
It is offered in level or recessed wooden surface and is suitable for wall mounting.
