Aged-Wooden 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.
Apolytikion of Synaxis of the Archangels
O Commanders of the Heavenly Host, we the unworthy beseech you, that through your entreaties you will fortify us, guarding us in the shelter of the wings of your ethereal glory, even as we fervently bow before you crying: "Deliver us from all danger, as Commanders of the Powers on high! "
The aging technique is meticulously applied to the Icon by hand and gives it the look of time while the depiction retains its artistic details.
Around the perimeter, the aging becomes more apparent with frayed edges that give the Icon a distinctive appearance.
