In the book of Daniel, Michael appears first to help the Archangel Gabriel defeat the Persians. Michael is an archangel In Hebrew, Christian and Islamic tradition.
Typically, he is represented as the Chief Commander of the Heavenly hosts, where he holds a sword in one hand.
In the orthodox iconography he is most likely to be wearing red. In many instances, Michael tramples the devil under his feet, which may be depicted as a dragon. This comes from the tradition that Michael was the main opponent of Satan in the battle for Heaven. Satan, previously called Samael, was always looking to discredit Israel, while Michael was its main protector. In the end, Satan attempted to drag Michael down in his fall from the heights, but Michael was rescued by God.

THE TECHNIQUE:
The icon is painted on stucco canvas mounted on wood panel with tempera paints. The back is I used gold leaf for the halo. The icon is sealed with couple of layers to assure a long lasting and well preserved image and to make it easy and safe to clean it from dust. The back and the sides are painted in gold for a nice finish. There is a triangle hook on top for easy hanging on a wall.

Measurements: 12x16 inches
