Description

Archangel Michael is one of the most celebrated of the angels. The name Michael means, "who is like unto God". His feast day of Saint Michael is celebrated on November the 8th.
Saint Michael is often considered to be the field commander of God's Army and he is sometimes referred to as "Archistrategos" which translates to "Supreme Commander of the Heavenly Hosts".
The Orthodox believe the angels to be incorporeal beings, created by God before the actual creation. They are immortal, not by nature but by the grace of God, and are called "second lights," the first light being God Himself. Their nature was originally changeable, but after the Incarnation of Christ, the angels were considered as saved and, therefore, unaltered. The Fathers believed that every believer has his own "guardian angel"- the angels pray for us, sing, and unceasingly glorify the Holy Trinity. They also serve as examples that people should follow.

THE TECHNIQUE: Made on wood; Measurements: 7 1/2 by 6 1/2 inches (19.5x17.5cm)
The icon is painted with tempera paint on wood panel. The icon is sealed with couple of layers varnish to assure a long lasting and well preserved image and to make it easy and safe to clean it from dust. The sides of the canvas are painted in gold.


If you would like to commission a specific icon or scene you don't see in my shop or if you have any question, I will be glad to hear from you!

    This icon was a custom order for the Badaliya and Peace Islands monthly interfaith prayer gathering at Saint Paul Roman Catholic Church, Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA, USA. Icons art was also commissioned by our parish to write five icons for the renovation of our Chapel of the Women Doctors of the Church. Those five icons were, St Hildegard von Bingen, St Catherine of Siena, St Theresa of Avila, St Therese of Lisieux, and Our Lady Seat of Wisdom. We are thrilled with all of these icons and recommend iconsart and Agnessa to any church or prayer group looking to commission a custom design icon for their worship space. Agnessa is very easy to work with and carefully collaborated with us on the final design of all of these icons. The best method is to send images of your design ideas, and she will work with you from there.

    Absolutely beautiful icon. I could not more highly recommend this artist if you are looking for an icon. She worked with us the whole way through, the icon was finished very quickly, and my daughter loved her confirmation gift. Thank you for helping us celebrate this holy event.
