Description

Engraved icon with Archangel Michael

An engraved icon with Major General Michael or Archangel Michael. His face has youthful features and has been painted with dense touches following the Byzantine tradition. The faithful and devoted to God Archangel Michael is the defender of the poor and weak people. He protects them from the evil and the hateful devil’s hatred.

In countless cases, this protection has been manifested by miraculous events. Primarily, however, as our Church teaches, he protects the souls of the people who are eager to the Lord, from the attacks of the demons and their efforts to prevent souls in their course to God. Archangel Michael is the one who appeared to Abraham at Isaac’s sacrifice. Then to Lot when he redeemed him with his family from the Sodom disaster. He appeared to Jacob when he was saved by his brother Esau who wanted to murder him.

Engraved icon: Characteristics

At this icon we have the representation of Archangel Michael. The iconographer follows until the last detail the standards of Byzantine art and he is also using colours processed mainly with egg and other traditional material. The surface of this artwork is coated with pure beeswax so that the icon maintains the vividness of the colours. This particular icon is painted on canvas and the vivid colours are elevating the aesthetic value of this artwork. The Byzantine workshop of Father Pefkis, since 1980, deals with the production of copies of portable images of the Byzantine and post-Byzantine period.
