Description

Icon with Archangel Michael on naturally aged wood

Major General Michael is portrayed with all his splendor as a Commander of the Insolent Forces. In the plain of the icon are written in capital letters “THE MICHAEL PRINCIPAL”.

The movement of the Archangel is emphasized by his great wings. His face has youthful features highlighted by the open preform of the flesh, which has been painted with dense touches following the Byzantine tradition. He holds a shield and a fiery scepter that symbolizes the power God has given to the world.

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.

Wood that came out of Paradise

In Mount Athos, even perishable materials continue to live after their primary use. The monks make use of everything for their preservation but also for the glory of God.

The uniqueness of this particular icon lies in the old wood where the icon of Archangel Michael is placed on canvas. It is a wood that has been used for many years in Mount Athos as a beam in a holy cell. When the time of the renovation came, it was turned into a unique icon. The cracks of the old wood in which the icon is placed bear witness to the years of its life on Mount Athos.
