Description

Gold Plated Lithography with Archangel Raphael

The Archangel Raphael is one of the most important angels and he is considered as a protector and responsible for the healers and the treatments in general. After all, his name means «the Lord heals, satisfies the requests». The presence of the Angel Raphael appears in the book of Tobit, when he was sent by God to cure him of his illness, telling his son what to do. He also healed Sarah, Raguel’s daughter, from a demon named Asmodeus. From these it seems that the Archangel Raphael has the authority or the gift from God to heal.

This particular icon has been created with the technique of lithography. In addition this icon has been gold plated and as a result the quality and overall aesthetics of the work is being upgraded and it also has embossed letters a technique done entirely by hand. Monks are learning the technique of lithography at iconography workshops at Mount Athos so they can create with love and patience these excellent artworks. At this icon the monk used a lithographic copy of Byzantine art to create this artwork. He also applied the process of artificial maturation by hand to give this icon unique aesthetic value.
