This is a copy of the ancient icon Archangel Michael from Greece. From the Athens Byzantine Museum, this remarkable 14 cent. Byzantine icon is of the Holy Archangel Michael, the captain and leader of the whole angelic host. From the earliest times Christians have turned to St. Michael for help in struggles of all kinds, especially for help in the passing from this earthly life to the Eternal Life.
The iconiscreated on a traditional wooden base with set oflevkas, a chalk-based natural glue, and a painted background. The icon is printed on a silk canvas and the final details are hand-painted by the iconographer. High-quality icon, with bright colors and the icon, seems like a hand-painted icon. Upon completion of the transcription, a few finishing touches are incorporated following special techniques of the St. Pantaleon monastery.
